Ug I feel like a horrible fish parent. I decided on a whim to check her ammonia levels and they were over 1.0. I just put fresh water in that tank 3 days ago and nothing was in it other than some gravel and a plastic plant...Well needless to say I took her out, dumped the water, rinsed everything that was in the tank, and made up a new batch of water. I tested the new water and it's got a 0.0 reading. I gave her Igor (one of my moss balls) and took the plastic plants out. I'm hoping she'll start feeling better soon!

She is adorable, and this play-by-play of the breeding process is fascinating! :D

lol thanks. On a side note I tried to give Smith and Velvet another go but they just wouldn't spawn, so I took her out. Once Popcorn gets all healthy I hope to give her a go with Smith

ok Popcorn update! I found a food she likes. While in her laying on the bottom state I took a tweezers and wiggled food in front of her nose. She snubbed freeze dred blood worms, she snubbed pellets, but she devoured the crisps. I added a tad bit more water and shes actually swimming around! I still only have her tank half full but if she makes it through the night I'll fill it all the way. I've also transformed her little hospital tank into a NPT. I threw some left over grass and an amazon sword in there. Along with Igor (lumpy moss ball) it looks pretty good. I might keep it as a regular tank with frequent water changes. I think she might have a slight case of SBD from traveling. I noticed she rests in the "S" position. Although she's seeming to get better and better now.

So just before going to bed I gave her one last check in and I found this adorable thing... she really likes the live plants. I don't think I could ever put her in a fake planted tank, but my only NPT is the one gallon...looks like lots of water changes for her.

How cute! Are you sure it's not heavily planted? In your previous pic it had gravel, and NPT have sand and soil I believe.

oh well then its not "natural" XD I have gravel. I'm pretty sure its not that heavily planted, the grass is tiny (a little bigger than quarter size) and the amazon sword is one that only grows 4 inches, and I plan on moving Igor back to the grow out tank once she's feeling 100%
