Re: Ceylon, Topaz salinity

Exact same requirements as the GSP. 55g tank is recommended for this larger species. Marine is doable for them.

Re: GSP Constipation???

Welcome! I find it odd you have no nitrate in an established tank? Generally, thinness is a sign of IPs, not chubbiness. What does his poop look like? White/stringy is also a sign of IPs. If he isn't pooping, you can add 1 tbsp Epsom salt/10g for constipation. How often are you feeding Huey? No need...

They will quickly DIE in BW. Change out all the water & add Tetra Safestart to the filter for quick FW cycling.
