hi Falcon,
welcome aboard.
could you possibly give a little more information on the problem,
also list your tank details and your water readings please.

Falcon 01-09-2008 06:36 PM

nitrates 10
ammonia 0
nitrite 0
ph 7.4

stingy white poop maybe I'm taking a wrong approach with this, maybe this is an internal parasites or a bacterial infection.

Four days after bringing these fish home, the one neon seemed stressed and letheic. (sp?) he just stayed in one spot. After doing a couple of doses of general cure he seemed a little more normal but still has the stingy white poop. Poop on the others are normal. I thought the grey on the sides of the fish wasn't normal but after looking around the internet, now I wonder if that is normal but the white poop on the other hand isn't.

What food do you feed it? Might want to start feeding the fish with food coated with metronidazole powder.

flakes
brine shrimp

I guess the grey on the side is normal, I didn't realize that at the time.
How long does it take for internal parasites kill a fish off? It's been almost two weeks since I brought these fish home, maybe theres nothing wrong. Seems happy and healthy and he eats good. Seemed normal after the general cure treatment

Am I chasing my own tale in this? Please feel free to tell me so and I'll be able to relax better
