it ate teh medicated worms, for a second it was swimming fine but now its back to laying on the gravel and the anal area is much more swollen with more little red worms poking out. I hope it will be alright :(

I am very frustrated because i have followed everything by the book and information found on the internet and information given to me by you guys but my fish are still dying and i almost always have a sick fish in my tank!!

ok some good news. The rams are eating there medicated worms and shrimp and they seem a tiny bit more healthy, there anuses are still swollen but there almost arent any little worms poking out. I will keep up the medicated food for 3 more days (as the instructions say) and hope for the best.

well today, it is as good as dead. It doesnt eat and doesnt move, its been sitting at the same place for almost 8 hours moving only its gills and fins. I am going to buy some enthuanize product today. One that contains clove oil and vodka or something....

The other ram is still going good though

thanks juliewiegand

geeze i was really hoping you would have good luck..But from your last post it seems you are not.Im sorry to hear things turned worse for your fish, i know how fustrating it is i lost another ram today...

If i loose the other 3 i am going to call it quits on trying to keep rams even tho i truly love these little guys, but i feel horrible to have them keep dying on me..

I hope your other one keeps doing good..

no need to thank me - you're more than welcome and as much as im not that experienced i like to try and help when i can. im really sorry he/she doesnt look likes theyre going to make it. sometimes you can do all you can and they still dont - just one of these things really but you tried really hard with it so look at it this way - it wouldnt have lasted as long if you hadnt and if youve decided to euthanise then at least it will have a peaceful death and not suffer so youve given it the best possible chance. you cant do anymore than that :( RIP

im not enthuanizing it anymore, what the strange thing is its lost all syptoms, no more red worms are sticking there heads out but the fish is just on the floor of the tank moving nothing but gills and fins, its changed spots 3 times in 2 days, it also hasnt lost any color, there is a chance it will be all better.....
