I have an electric yellow who has bulging eyes,bulging body.He doesn't really look well at all.Could someone please help me to find the cause of its problem.As I'm unsure why he is this way.
What are your water parameters? What food do you feed it? This is a case of bloat. Mbunas are prone to it if fed with food containing too much protein, bad water quality, intestinal parasites, etc.
sound like it's got "Malawi Bloat"
it can be treated with "Metronidazole"
you maybe lucky and be able to save the fish,
if this has just begun there is a survival chance
however it is unlikely i'm affraid,as secondary
symtoms begin to occure. :(
All water levels seem ok.This Malawi Blot can it be catching to the other fish.And what are the other symtoms.
swelling of the abdomen,loss of appitite,sitting on
the bottom of the tank,streaky feces,lingering at the top
of the tank,increased breathing.
the problem also can occure in the other fish,if
the conditions do not change.
Ralph, you did not mention the foods you feed your fish. I need to know them.;)
I feed them blood worms and omega one color flakes. :)
Re: electric yellow
any news ?
I feed them blood worms every 2nd or 3rd night. Done this since I bought them and never had a problem.But this one seems he is doing fine.He's segregated in a bucket in a epson salt solution no food.
