My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years and a Fish keeper for 40+ years.

Can you tell me if you have checked water parameters?

What type of test kit do you use?

What is the Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates and PH??

Any bloating?

We have checked the water repeatedly with no problems. We are still making water changes and filter changes. Have you ever seen a fish that eats and still stays at the bottom of the tank? He has been like this for months now. Hope you can help or know someone who can help. There are no fish vets around Tampa. Thanks!

I am at a loss with this and the Fish will need a specialist.

We tried calling that person you referred us to many times and there is no response. Unfortunately, we would like to request a refund of our fee. Thank you.
