He has no white spots. Thanks for the help guys. I do use water conditioner but maybe I don't let it sit long enough in the water before I add it.

are you using the right dosage? usually it says on the bottle how long it should sit for but USUALLY it takes only 10-15minutes till the water is safe to use.

does your tank have a heater?

Yes it has a heater that is supposed to heat to 78 degrees, I think i might buy one that is adjustable though because it never gets that high.

id recommend getting a thermometer.. either a stick on outside one or a glass one with suction cup. you'll know then.

LOL that was a big mistake.. your just supposed to buy them and you then have no choice but to keep him/her lol

I do have a thermometer and my heater clearly doesn't work right. I'll have to buy another heater.
