Fish Poops Too Much
I have this platy in my tank that poops all the time. Whenever I look at it, there's a 95% chance its pooping. Is this caused by an internal parasite, or does it just poo to much?
Do you think it is a simple case of what goes in must come out? Maybe you are over feeding her?
I don't think I'm overfeeding her. I might actually be underfeeding her, because I have guppies, and guppies eat a ton. My male platy doesn't have this problem.
And chances are good your platy is simply eating all the guppy fry, that's why he is pooping a lot. Perfectly normal for a healthy fish.
I've found that most livebearers are pretty poopy fish...meaning they seem to poop a lot. LOL
Thanks guys. If this platy is eating my fry, I have problems. I am trying to raise my fry, not let my platies gorge themselves!
Just add some hiding places. The platy will still get a few, but hey. It's survival of the fittest.
Just go buy some nice dense stem plants for the fry to hide in.
