Leonadas isn't doing so well,he's no longer making the bubble nest at the top of the jar,i did a water change last week and he hasn't seemed to be himself since then.The zeolite stones minerals are starting to turn more greyish as comparde to the one's that aren't in the water.leonadas doesn't seem to recognise me anymore, i always find at the top of the jar breathing in air and he runs away when i come near the jar.The red waste products he was prodicing at first aren't as much as there,i think he's eating very little or not eating at all.The food i give remains at the top of the jar or justs sinks to the bottom and so i've stopped feeding him for now to see wether he'll eat the food that is still floating at the top of the jar or not.He is still not very active as usual.The pH for my water was 7.2.1 and the  No3-0 and the No2-250.I've been leaving the jar by the window exposed to the sun the whole day and the water temperature increases by the time i get back home.  with a pH close to 7.0 at 25 °C. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are said to be aacidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline.The water temprature when i did the water chemistry tests was 23°C which is fairly alright.The Algae on the plants is growing much faster than before a i did the water chnage and the leaves are staritng to turn brown, a few have died already and i removed them from the inside the jar.I think it could also be the algae that's making leonadas sick.There is a high amount of nitrites in the water,the bacteria needed to break it down is probably not growing as much the the nitrites are being produced.
