Hi I have a dwarf puffer that almost seems to be sick but im not sure, I have had him for about 3-4 weeks now and he's been doing great except for the last 2 days. He kinda just sits around at the bottom of the tank and hides all day, and doesnt care for food much which is weird because he was a pig he even ate 2 of my ghost shrimp lol. I did notice that he's been acting like this since i stopped feeding them frozen blood worms could that have somthing to do with it?
My tank set up is a 50g kept at 80 degrees, i have lots of hiding places caves, rock, driftwood etc and 3 live plants. My fish consist of 1 dwarf puffer, 1 green spotted puffer, 2 kirbensis cichlids , 2 dojo loaches, 2 mono sebaes, 1 demasoni cichlid and maybe 5-10 ghost shrimp that have been going missing lol.
the water has 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 1-3 nitrate, 6.5ph and i do 10-20% waterchange every week adding water treatment, i also add 1tbs of aquarium salts every other water change.
I dont think its my water but you never know. Should i set up a hospital tank for him? or just keep watching him, he doesnt appear to but sick or injured he's just mopey
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
