Help! My severum has stopped eating!
Everything has been going so well in my tank, currently, there are 5 Australian Rainbowfish (2-3 inches now), 2 Emerald Rainbowfish (~2") and 2 rotkeil severums (~3") in my 55 gallon tank. We are planning on soon getting a 125. Everything has been going well, and all the water tests have been perfect, but all the sudden, the other day, one of my severums has stopped eating. All the other fish are acting fine. I feed frozen brine shrimp and bloodworms in the morning and Omega One pellet food in the evening. Every other day or so, I feed peas in the afternoon. Ammonia is between 0 and 0.25, pH is 7.6, Nitrites are 0, Nitrates are approx 5, using the API master test kit. Also, yesterday, my tank really clouded up all of the sudden, but the water quality is still reading the same. I keep the water temp about 80. Does anyone know if there is anything I need to do, or what I can do to save my severum. On hand I have some Rid-Ich +, some Melafix, and some Pimafix, but if there is something else I need, I should be able to run out and get it (I'm a SAHM and we only have one vehicle, so me getting out can be difficult sometimes)
