Noface/Alakazam has developed an EXTREMELY sudden case of clamp I think. =[
I was changing his water (waiting for it to filter through my britta pitcher to fill his and Genie's 1 gallon jar and 1 gallon vase respectively) and while I was doing that I left them in their (cleaned) pet store cups (which I've been doing up till now).
Unfortunately I guess I wasn't paying attention because I set their cups right beside each other without a sight barrier. It took twenty minutes for everything to filter for his jar (which I did first) and to get everything salted, conditioned, and fungal treated (I'm alternating garlic pieces in the tank and fungal medicine on an every other day basis.).
When I got back to my room where both of their homes are set up, I discovered that where Alakazam/Noface's Caudal fin had been full and flowy it was now tight and clamped looking and he looked kinda freaked.
I don't think it's fungal because I've been treating for finrot for a while now and it seems to be subsiding.
Right now he's sitting at the bottom of his 78 degree jar being uncharacteristically very lethargic. <=[
Could this be from stress?
If so how do I help it?
From concern that it might actually be fungal I added garlic pieces even though this was a fungal medicine day and I already dosed his jar. =[
We're also flea bombing my house tomorrow. I'm putting their homes and the 5 gallon outside in the morning and I'll call my mom on my break to put them back inside. Thought I'd mention that.
Also I think I might be over medicating. =/ Not sure.
