i get call from my uncle and all the sons fish was dying and they ere giving up fish keeping. And of course the tank they had wasnt cycle so i went over with my ttest kit and the amoina was the highest i have ever seen it. So i guess thats why there were dying. So I took the lost 2 fish home with me witch was 1 neon terta with hardly any color and a clown pleco not even an inch long. I figured it was the amonia that killed so i put them in my tank. The neon tetra is slow getting his color back but the clown pleco i dont think hes gona make it. He seems to just stay on the side of one of my plants and breath heavily. I hope its not 2 late for him. I also put some stress zyme in. Hope all guys well for the little guy.

I hope it works out for you.
I'm sure the ammonia has knocked a few years off of its life though.
Give it time to settle in the tank.

I am sorry. it was good of you to try. He was probably burned to badly already.

Sorry to hear that. It really shows the importance of cycling properly. Poor fish but I'm glad you tried to save them.
