    Yeah, I don't think I should've dipped Acan 1, it didn't seem to like it. But I suppose if the tissue that came off was that loosely bound, it was "goner" tissue anyway. I'll keep an eye on it and see how it does. I'm learning a lot about them through this, but I regret that some may die in the process. These are the first potential losses I would have in the tank. I'm planning on taking daily shots because then I might see possible improvement and it'll be easier to see the overall changes. We'll see if they get better after their dip.

    It doesn't look too happy, but some of the tissue that was there was clearly rotting...

    I've removed the dog hair from Acan 2... I swear this dog sheds EVERYWHERE, even IN the tank

    We vacuum the couch and the bed every day to every other day... it's like the couch slowly changes colors from off white/tan to gray. Black labs aren't supposed to shed this bad.

    I've noticed another head that seems to be inflating (upper right).

    I'm going to give it every chance I can. IF it does make a come back (I'm still not expecting it to, but I won't give up on it if it's still going to try), it will likely become one of my favorite things in the tank.
