Default My red canary not eating.

It's been 5 to 6 days that my Tropheus red canary cheek are not eating. They are getting skinny every time I looked at them. I notice that when they poop its kind a white and thin. (Sign of bloat)? Pls help how to cure them. Thanks

Never heard of Red Canary Cheek but yeah treat immediately or you can potentially lose all of your fish.

I stole this from another forum, but this is what works for me.

== IMPORTANT ==
(1) DO NOT FEED ANYTHING during this process.
(2) Start this procedure as soon as the fish shows symptoms (spitting familiar food, not eating, long stingy clear or white feces, gasping, hiding during feeding, bloated or emaciated belly,etc.) NOTE: If your fish is bloated but is still eating chances are it does NOT have bloat. A bloated belly is typically the LAST symptom you will see in a fish that has bloat.

Medication required: Clout (Aquarium Products)

Day 1: Move fish to quarantine tank and treat with Clout at full strength (1 tablet / 10 gallons--remove carbon from filter)

Day 2: No water change. Treat again with Clout at half strength.

Day 3: Do nothing

Day 4: Do an 80% water change and treat with Clout at full strength

Day 5: Do nothing

**Day 6--?: Return fish to main tank only after symptoms have subsided and the fish has been healthy: (eating, swimming, breathing normally) for at least a week.
Resist the urge to try feeding the fish until after the treatment is over and do not cut the treatment short regardless of whether the fish looks better or not. If at any time during the treatment your fish seems to be experiencing stress as a result of the medication then do an immediate 75% water change.

I think a little more info would be nice before instantly moving to "treat with Metro or Clout now"...

Are these Tank Breed or WC?

how long ahve you had them?

There could be numerous reasons that they are not eating. And white stringy poop is not always a sign of bloat. it can mean that they are not eatting much. Holding females that don't eat much will do the same thing.


P.S. You shouldn't wait so long to inform us or ask what to do next time. This forum is for immediate help and questions!

I have 18 of them. They are all F1. They are about over a year old now. I got them from LAA. They where fat and healthy but I notice on Monday that some are not eating. Last night I've notice that they look skinny, some are hiding behind rocks. I will keep that in mind not to wait so long. Hope they will get better soon.
