seems like its scales r stickin out a little but not much and its not bloated at all, so maybe not dropsy, its not gaspin for air or anythin, just so lifeless and not eating, im worried that its starving to death

Hi Lioness.

Metronidazole will improve the appetite of your bolivian ram but before you try it, we'll need to dig deeper into what exactly is happening to the bolivian ram.

Oh, and pls add the list of food you give them.:)

Hope it recovers soon.:)

no not sickin out in a certain area, all of it, but no stickin out major, i offer it flakes and bloodworms, thats all i have, i havent seen it eat for about a week, like i said it seems to think it has to fight for its food so it doesnt bother, hasnt eaten much at all since i got it, thing is im currently treatin for fungus so i cant treat it as well, i do have some internal parasite meds, u think i should try that?

Untill you establish what is the prob there is no point chucking whatever you have at it. You'll just do more harm than good. Go down the lowering nitrates line, but I think it's stressed.
