Seems fine to me if he's eating the bloodworms...

Good news, I was able to have some Melafix shipped to me and I was also able to get some Praziquantel from a local vet! So, I gave my first treatment of both Melafix and Praziquantel today as a preventative measure.

Thanks PufferPunk and Bleedingheartmommy for the suggestions!

Can you mix crushed coral and gravel for the substrate for f8's?
If so should it be 50/50?

You can, if it is enough to buffer the water properly.
