I think my green terrors have a parasite too.  One has stopped eating, and the other eats like crazy but is still really skinny.  Also the poop is white and clear. I plan on moving to a 25g quarentine tank and treating with "Quick-Cure", does that sound like a good idea to you guys? Any other meds work any better?  Im pretty sure they got it from some ghost shimp i fed them lately, its the only thing that has changed in the tank.  Stupid live feeders, when will I learn!!

125g - 10"GT, 6"GT, 4"GT, 6"JD, 4"Convict, 4"Geo. Heckalii, 4"Bushynose Pleco, 6" Raphael Cat
55g - Planted Community
45g - Angels
20g - Angels breeding pair
5g - GT wigglers

Did the yellow lab fatten up?

Becuase for some reason i have alot of Hongi fry/Juvniles which are skinny like urs was. And its only the hongi's that i know are skinny.


i have had the same problem except with yellow labs. so what snake has except 1 inch juvies. they did fine after a while. and congrats on keeping her alive!

well believe it or not the fish has started eating for the past 2 days. I have no idea what was wrong with it.. all i know is the fish is eating like a mother now lol. I moved her to another tank and she seems to be doing great. I stopped doing treatment after the 2nd week. then just added salt to the tank.

Well as soon as i thought the fish was doing better.. the fish as of today is not eating again... i have no idea whats going on. Should i maybe try the bacterial medication now? it seems the parasite one is not working.

Well. The lab is still doing well. The fish only eats 1 piece of food.. then tries to eat the others but ends up spitting those out... I guess 1 piece of food is better then nothing!

the yellow lab is eating :) the right fin on the fish is really red? hopefully that will go away in a day or 2. Should i do a second treatment just to be safe or stop after tomorrow and just keep him or her in the qt tank.
