PostSubject: sunken stomach    Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:01 am

I have a well cycled tank that has good readings far as ammonia and nitrates but I keep noticing fish that have sunken stomachs .. it started with a fish I bought a while back that has since died and now I notice a couple other fish that seem to have the same issue..I started treating for internal bacterial infections and one of the two fish have improved noticeably but the other not so much. I feed them spectrum and have now started treating for internal parasites. His appetite is normal and no white poop..is this condition cure able?

This can be curable, but it might be dicey depending on how long it has gone on. It definitely sounds like internal parasite, and something like Prazipro is going to be required.

If the fish still want to eat then it is easier, since you can soak the food in the Prazipro.

You'll likely need to increase your PWC schedule while they undergo this treatment.

Keep us posted!

I can't find any info on what it is, exactly, but if it is something you put in the water it is not likely going to do anything for internal parasites, which is what this sounds like. You'll need something like Hikari Prazipro, or API General Cure and feed only that food.
