Settle digestive issues, invigorate activity or provide perhaps needed minerals or vitamins.
Just a thought somewhat off topic ‘Do fish need light to be healthy’?
Today will be day 18, still no change.
Garlic is supposed to be an appetite thing, peas helps in some sort of fish constipation. The garlic didn't work to get him to eat so I didn't bother with the peas. I was going to try some frozen worms or something but when I was at the LFS their freezer was off... lost a boat load of food due to a failure... so no freezies for the fishies.
I am going to collect some insects today and see if he might be interested in some kicking and screaming food.
I gave up on the isolation (family pressure), I put him back into the main tank. He hangs in the floating plants. This is the fist time I have been able to see his profile due to the opaque isolation container... he still looks fine, "breathing" normally, just is more skittish than normal, of me... not of the other fish though.
