That will work for the rest but not the ones not eating.

Also want to make sure that Metronidazole, being an antibiotic, is used appropriately every time its used to avoid causing resistence. So it should be used on a schedule, daily, for a good 7 days minimum.

Gotcha. Good deal. One thing that I can't recommend enough with Tropheus is to watch them! Interact at the tank with them. Getting to know the general Tropheus behavior will help you catch a change in the behavior, if something does pop up so that you can put a regimen in to action asap.

And it's fun too.

Ok so I had one die so far and two that I have moved into a qt tank... they are slow and getting skinny. I have been feeding the same food and added metro. Now I am treating the tank..... I see a few other ones that might be on their way to getting skinny as well.......
