Hi again! SO, since Amidala's passing I've been turning my attention to my little T and making sure all is OK before getting my new guys in . He has been behaving a little strangely, darting around one minute and very peaceful the next it made me suspect parasites of some sort , so I decided to treat with prazi/fluke solve this week as a safety measure, this has calmed him down a little but his behaviour is still a little unpredictable so I was planning to re-dose. But his poop is really weird! I fed him: Bits of egg, kale and lettuce before the prazi went in... -Did I mess up feeding him just before treating? His poop goes- wait for it- a normal piece- same colour, normal thickness( that doesn't just fall) followed by a clear casing followed by zigzag which is in the same colour as his last few feeds, white/green. -We are now on day 4 of a 1 week treatment of fluke solve. As I know you guys say it loses potency on day 3 was planning on redosing today after a water change and continuing, what do you think? P.s Water params are the same as in last post on Amidala (normal)- only difference being nitrates are now lower at 20PPM.
I have three GF babies in a 0.2% salt solution. Increasing to 0.3% shortly. But my question is How long after they eat should I see Poop? I havent seen a lot of anything... are they constipated? One is showing signs of swimming with is head down tail up. Going to do the epson salt and green peas today. Newbie here Thanks for the info. Tracey
Love me some poop tags. So, on Sunday I noticed Betty with some slightly raised scales. She is now in QT. Since then I may have become paranoid, but I have been seeing symptoms with some of my other fish.

Fluval 406 (383gph) AC70 and AC110 (800gph together) * How often do you change the water and how much? Every 5-7 days, at least 75% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Changed three nights ago, about 80% * How many fish in the tank and their size? Six fish - 4 between 30g-60g, 2 around 10g * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime * What do you feed your fish and how often? Omega One Cichlid, mysis shrimp, Emerald Entree, greens, and bloodworms * Any new fish added to the tank? About 6 weeks ago, my two fry were added * Any medications added to the tank? No * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Last prazi treatment was one round in mid-August. One round done in late May (when Plumbean was added), one in late April (when Betty was added). All fish were given at least four full rounds of Prazi when they were in their intial QT. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? No * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Blimp (the orange lionhead) is bottom sitting occasionally and I do find him yawning a bit more than usual. He is less active than normal, but I cannot call him lethargic. I have spotted some weird, thin, zigzaggy poop in several of the fish (Blimp is one, and Betty as well). Today poops are looking a lot better. I'm not sure that I've seen any weird poop at all today, actually spotted a normal one from Blimp just before coming here to write this. If anyone wants to throw some ideas out here, please do. I have a new bottle of Prazi on its way to me since I'm not sure I have enough in my open bottle. Kinda feel like the signs are leading to flukes but there could be more to it. I've been trying to get a video or pictures of this behavior, but you know what they're like when you're feeding lightly for a few days. Eyes everywhere. (I am also about to take a closer look at Blimp from above, just to make sure that he is not pineconing at all. I don't think he is, but if so I will report back with a video of that asap.)
