Oh no, Madara..T.T

I came home just now to find my CT boy Madara looking very ill..His colors are pale and he's swimming sideways..I'm going to thoroughly clean his 5g now since it WAS time to do a water change..He's currently in a 1g container with half tank water and half fresh water with some aquarium salt, and I put my black sweater over it to keep him relaxed. Please pull for him everyone!

Looks like he's got an issue with his swim bladder..His tummy is a bit swollen too. I'm going to fast him for a few days..Hopefully he improves with that and his clean tank..

Good news! I woke up this morning and uncovered his tank and he's swimming normally again. There must have been something in the water that was bothering him, but I'm still going to lay off the food just to be safe. Phew!

Yeah, something must have gotten into the water....maybe some sort of cleaning product or hair spray?

Yeah maybe, I don't remember spraying anything but hey, you never know. I'm just glad he's okay. I went up to see him before and he swam right over. :D

Yeah, you never know.....I usually try to keep any sort of chemicals out of my room, just in case..but you know, maybe it wasn't even that. Maybe a fly flew into the water and died or something...:P

At least hes feeling better though! That's a good thing xD
