ok, im not 100% sure on internal paracite anymore. One of my ram has these really really really small red things sticking out of his anus. They slowly come out when its not moving and go in when he is moving. I was thinking Nematoda for my ram. About my danio im not so sure now, it still eats but it doesnt move unless its running away


were planning to get medication today but i dont know what to medicate with now!!!

Ok i dont think Nematoda is the sickness my ram is having, they both seem fine now. My danio is acting more more normal now as well. I still want some answers in case this happens again. It is possible for them to act normal for one day and die the next....

im really glad that they seem alright now. sorry i cant be of anymore help, like i said the information i gave you was just from searching online rather than actually experiencing it. seems really odd that the symptoms have just disappeared but just hope theyre gone for good. i suppose it would be possible for a fish to be fine then die, but i think that if anything then a fish would deteriorate before its death rather than the other way round so keep your fingers crossed, and ill keep mine crossed for you.

im going to get Metronidazole today to treat for internal parasites. There has been a deterioration in eating and i will need to probably treat the whole tank. My rams are slowly losing there appetite. The symptoms are back on my danio....

I will also buy special fish food to help flush internal parasites out. I will also buy some enthanize product in case the worse comes....

ok i bought 100% metronidazole today, as well as focus which helps the medicine work, i need to mix it in with the fishes food. Both are seachem products.

I need to get them to eat and i heard garlic helps. The garlic guard there would expire in 2 months and they only had the big ones so i didnt get it. i was wondering if you could just slice up some garlic very finely and mix it in with frozen food?
