well, today is technically Day 5 of Stanley's recuperation. He doesn't seem all that much better yet, but he is still alive!
I've been doing 100% daily water changes (well, twice yesterday as I did it very early and fairly late) of treated tap water & aquarium salt mixture... he still just sits idly at the bottom of his quarantine tank, but seems to be better at getting air when he needs it.
He has not been eating, however. The pellets I got him just float at the top until soaked, and then eventually sink. I've been leaving a few in for about 30-an hour before taking them out so as not to pollute the water. I even tried a frozen blood worm, but he didnt go for that either.
Is is possible he could starve on his road to recovery? Will there be gradual signs that he's getting better, or will he just be A-OK one day? I'm doing all I can, and hope he pulls through! (btw, the new thermometer reads a steady 76)
