My fantail Blub has made poos that are anywhere from his body length (1.5") to SIX TIMES his body length....and when he does they are stringy and light to white color . they say 'the amount he will eat in 5 minutes" but i feel like he goes so crazy at feeding time that he'll eat the whole bag of hikari if i put it in there... i feed him a combo of Hikari Staple Hikari Gold Staple Saki-HIkari romaine lettuce bits green pea mashed without shell blood worms every 2 weeks (maybe 10 tiny worms) Also I feed him a combo of the Hikari foods together. i would say that i feed him a total of 8 baby pellets at a time Please advise if any of this seems wrong Thanks!
Hello there, My ryukin sometimes floats, and stays stuck at the surface, and sometimes floats upside down (rarely) for a second or two. I thought he had swim bladder, but then I noticed he only floats late in the day (after feeding times have passed). So It lead me to believe that he gets bloated easily, because my oranda does not float like him. I started to research what could be wrong, and then I noticed white string of poop left by him for a couple of days and I got worried, because the other month my smallest oranda died from dropsy after having white string poop. So I quickly fed him more peas than usual, and now after a week or so he has stopped pooping white and has stopped floating altogether, and is now more interactive and more exited to see me than ever before! (i think he knows i am cycling his new tank, he can see it across the room, hehe) did the peas cure him? thanks.
