Re:Sick female– GBD, I think


I just did the 1st 100% water change for Zoe, she looks worse today than yesterday, it seems like her tail is weak because she doesn’t really hitch, she’s just up at the top of the water. Her breathing is a little fast, but not too bad. I ordered 100 shrimp from Seawater Express, thank you both very much for that suggestion. He is sending them tomorrow, since today is Sunday, so by Tuesday I should have something to entice her. She refused to look at the food this morning. Her belly is still big, she doesn’t look pinched or anything, and I have put a boig handful of Chaeto from my fuge in there in case she might snick a pod or so. But that’s doubtful since she is just sitting at the top…. 🙁

So Pete, should I continue for the 7 days, then? I know she would feel better to go back in the big tank with her tankmates, and if she was eating I could target her with gutloaded shrimp. Assuming she gets her appetite back….
