Zebra danio, looking and acting strange
One of my zebra danio barely swims and nests himself on top of a plastic plant. He seems very skinny and only comes out for food once everyone else eats it, it is very hard to feed him and most of the time i need to feed him separatly. He is anti-social and likes to be by himself. His color is fine though, and his fins are outstreched but he seems to be a bit curved, like an arc. any diagnoses?
i will try and get a picture but he hides well and i really hate my camera
Sorry i missed out on this stuff
Nitrate <10, i think its around 5
he has been like this for... about a month or so, quite a long time
Re: Zebra danio, looking and acting strange
oh, well do you know why?
i looked closer and its back fin seems kinda weird, like its transparent at the end, is this fin rot of a case of aggressiveness. Either way should i get melafix?
He looks a lot different than mine did. Mine were thin the whole length of the body, no discernible stomach.
Musho, I would treat your danio in a hospital tank using Metronidazole. It looks like a case of internal parasites. Metronidazole should remove the internal parasites and improve its appetite.
ok, what about melafix, im living in america and ive heard good things about melafix. Also my quarantine tank is being used by bolivian rams, they've been in there for more than a week so can i move them to my main tank?
Your bolivian rams appear to look skinny as well judging by your pics. I would treat them together with your danio with Metronidazole. Melafix will do nothing other than treat tattered fins and wounds.
