I have a picture on here of him and would like to know if there is something wrong with him, he is acting like he found a pot of gold and is trying to hide it from someone. Any advice? I am testing the water later today, I just got 2 new horse face loaches in the tank (30gal) I have a gouramI Wich is just happy as can be a Cory 2 neon tetras and 3 Otto's.

Here it is

He Is also been following my gouramI around in certain areas of the tank, mostly his territory I think.

Maybe I should get him a girlfriend so he won't pester the gourami

Fish looks great. Another one or a few would give him some company. How big is the tank. He looks like he protecting his property.

The tank is 30 gallons, right now he has just been following my gouramI around now. I don't think he is fine cuzz he is very dark compared to normal, like he is a very colorful German blue ram but know he is all black and burnt looking. This is the water peramiters before I did a water change things morning, I am going to check them Asian tomorrow and probably do another one.

He looks ok in picture .
Why do you register ammonia ?
To get your nitrates down to 20ppm from 40 you need to do a 50% water change .
the amount you remove is the amount[%] the nutrient will be reduced.
50% water change from 40ppm will yield 20ppm a better number for the otos and GBR who do not tolerate bumps in the cycle well.

Ok thanks, I just put what was in the test on my screenshot so I just know that the ammonia needs to go down to 0

That stuff u said about the nitrates is really smart. And it makes sense, I will try that today.
