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
I just got 2 ryukins - 4 days ago. One is a Female very large red / white broad tail and the other is a Male medium white long tail. They've been in QT and I've been doing 100% water changes daily with prime - 2 air stones and a faux plant for them to hide behind. They've been spawning and she laid eggs the last two days - nothing today. I don't see her eat much but if I turn off the lights and walk away I saw her eat a little - the white medium I've seen eat often. During today's WC there were 2 LONG white and clear poops...... real long - coiled up. I haven't seen any brown poop yet.... I tried Hikari pellets, frozen bloodworms, and repashy soilent green. Thoughts?
Hi all! I have a question while I read up on good feeding practices. My 5 inch ryukin goes crazy for leafy lettuce. I've noticed that lately his poop...well, it's significant! Haha. They're huge strands, bright green, a few inches long and almost the width of a straw! I wonder if it's normal just because I haven't seen it before. Usually poops are very skinny and brown. They've been getting leafy lettuce for the last 2 months or so. I'm also never sure how much lettuce to give them. I love it because it keeps them away from my plants, but I'm afraid to give too much. They go nuts for it! They also get different food once a day, either flakes or pellets or brine shrimp.
Hey guys! please forgive me for posting so often. especially these past few weeks. I've been very stressed out lately about saving up for a larger tank, which i finally got today! it took a LOT of work to set up, and i was super releived when i finished. but now little bert is having clear poop, and now i have another thing to worry about. isn't that just dandy?
