So I moved, and everything seemed okay...I put them in cups in a padded box. Camelot adjusted very well, and enjoys watching the new cats run around the room. Avalon, on the other hand, seems....not so well. There's a dark, crinkly edging to his fins (which are normally cellophane), his gills are inflamed, eyes seem to be turning half-red, and he's very lethargic. I added a new heater to his tank, and he's high enough away that the cats can't even get on eye-level with him, but he seems...weak. He'll nibble at food, and ignore the rest, and just kind of hang on the bottom of his tank - not even near the heater! I'm so worried...I don't want to lose him.
