    Default Please help me sick green severum

    Hello,
    Can anyone please help me? My Severum was fine when I left today, I came home 7 hours later and he is acting like he is going to die. Looking up and seems to be breathing a little hard. He is in a 29 gallon with a fire mouth who seems fine. He is about 4” long and the fire mouth is about 2”. I check the water ASAP. Ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 20, ph 7.2.
    I have a gravel substrate but this tank is just to house him until my LFS delivers and sets my 210 gallon tank. He will not be in there long. I have had him for 3 weeks. The only thing that I thought was strange was he always hid. The LFS said he was just getting used to his environment. I fed him live black worms last night and before I left today I put in a few pieces of a medium raw shrimp. I removed it when I got home. I saw the fire mouth eating it before I left. Temp is 79 and I have an aquaclear 70 and a sponge filter. I have been putting some extra bags of media in the tank for the new tank.
    PLEASE HELP ME WITH NY NEW BABY

    What test kit do you use?

    How often do you perform water changes?...what water conditioner do you use?

    I know nothing about cichlids, any chance the fire mouth is harassing him?...they are the only fish in the tank?

    He has battle scars from the firemouth. The firemouth owns the whole tank.

    That's what I was afraid of.

    Ok I would totally agree it would be the fire mouth but why have I never seen it and why does the firemouth act like he is scared of the severum? I will send a picture of them. I use an API master test kit. They are still small so they are in a 29gallon alone. I do a 50% water change every week. I use prime for a water conditioner and I am on a natural spring well. When I test my water it is 0 across the board. I just fed some black worms and he ate as he normally does.
