That is a great temp for them. Not too cold to feed but not too warm that they should be fed 3-4 times a day (and that's a lotta poop). You could save the food and try to feed it to them next spring. Maybe after not eating for a few months they would be more likely to try the floating stuff.
Thanks Izzy, that does put my mind at ease about feeding them that, and the temp has been staying around 65 F so it's not too cold to feed it either. I kinda like it better too. The poop stays together longer, making it easier to suck out. Now what to do with a bag of Fosters and Smith koi food and a jug of treats they won't eat . . .
I'm glad to hear you say that, I feel better having to make them stay in there for a bit longer. And yeah, I can't wait to stock the tank when they move out. I'm torn between Malawi cichlids or 3 clown loaches.
Haha, since I have to pay for my computer repairs, the pond is on a temporary hold. I hope to have it running by May now. But they're in a 55 gallon now with a Fluval 405 canister filter. :)
Oh, on your thread. I did say it does look like lympho but on second thought, if there are still a lot of blackened scales then I'd put him in 1 tsp of aquarium salt for a week or so just in case it's actually an external parasite and not lympho.
