Back to the beginning
. I did 100% water change the other day and I woke up to see my baby with his fins in really bad condition. I still use aquarium salt and I do 50% every other day and 100% in between.
My heater pad broke though and the water temperature was under 70 degrees for a few hours . I guess it happened after we went to bed because I check the water temp like 15 times a day.
His mood is cheery as always,made the biggest bubble nest yesterday,flared at me,made a big poop ( actually I thought the poop was a fin,it was that big
),swimming back and forth into his cave.
