So I just got this brand new boy yesterday, and he was doing fine.
Today he started fine, and now he is lethargic, just kinda floating around the surface of his tank, not moving much. He can swim, but he is hanging out at the surface. I have a little more than half gal QT bowl ready (because it is all I have atm. I will be picking up a 1-2gal later) I was thinking of starting an epson salt treatment of 1 tsp.
He has a few ghost shrimp and 1 plant for tank mates other than that nothing. The water looked a little cloudy yesterday but I thought it was the water conditioner I put in and it began to clear in the evening. Yet still looked a little cloudy today. So I don't know what to do.
So please suggestions.... I am start the QT then now and do other treatments as needed. I am also preforming a 50% water change on the main tank as we speak. The tank is a 3.5-4 gal, water temp is 76 atm all the levels should be alright. I hope.
Also I noticed a off smell about the water... could the ammonia have spiked and its trying to cycle?
