Koimaiden - Silke said that I should remove the filter and cycle it in a bucket of ammonia. I'm about to leave in a bit to go to PetSmart so if I can pick it up now, I will, but I'm not sure what he's talking about. Is that something I can just buy? Ammonia?(as silly as that sounds lol).

He hasn't responded so I was wondering if you might be online as well :3

I don't think pet stores sell ammonia.. It'd be in a grocery store in the cleaning section.. Just make sure the only two ingredients are water and ammonia :)

In case anyone wants to follow Ro's health, here is the thread on GAB I'm posting in. Feel free to comment on it on here, I can use all the help I can get. I will not let this little girl die on me like poor Fus did :C

Me and mine are sending positive fish thoughts you way, Kelsey. Silke and Karrie (Mz RO) are wonderfully smart and resourceful people. You're in good hands. I'm sorry I couldn't be here for you earlier. I was just figuring out my solution to a crisis I've been having.

Oh, another question about the moss ball - should that be QT'ed too? I just picked one up at PetSmart (and ordered one off ebay) because they keep them in their own cups where as PetCo keeps them in tanks with other fish and I didn't want to risk any more problems.

From what I've read here is that some people have trouble finding "pure ammonia", which it must be, no scents or added soap stuff, just ammonia and water, I understand they sometimes find it at Ace Hardware stores if you have one by you. good luck
