I got two fish online they said delivery by 2 but ups didn’t show up till 7 pm. The smaller fish is fine, however the large clown fish seemed in distress. I didn’t acclimate as I wanted to due to the distress of the fish. It is swimming very odd. Do you think the build up of ammonia was too much for the fish ? Is there anything I can do to save the fish? I put some prime in my qt tank since when I tested the water he was shipped in it was very high ammonia🙀.  Such a pretty fish I don’t want it to die..

Just saw this.  It could definitely be ammonia.  Hopefully you are running good aeration on the QT tank, sometimes that helps.  How is it doing now?

Methylene blue works great for ammonia related poisoning though the effects by now on the fish have either subsided are its too late. Hope it made it.

Good to know farmer ty. I may buy some to keep on hand for future issues. I put an extra air stone I had in the tank and the fish pretty much just hung out in the bubbles it’s swimming normal today hope that means all is well

So you have to surround them with fire and they will kill themselves???? I have to see it to believe it
