View Full Version : bolivian ram sick

My bolivian ram was acting odd today. Instead of rushing up to the front of the tank and awaiting food, he hung back. He looks a little skinnier, and his gills are more red. And at one point he clamped his fins and started shimmying instead of swimming. But now he started coming to the front of the tanks. I just did a water change on sunday night. What's up?

some rams are injected with hormones to make them colour faster and this is supposedly what causes them to suddenly die

or so dave keeps telling us

but i trust him

weird, this one is definetly not juiced up with hormones. He's not very colorful. He was very healthy for 3 weeks. We'll see what happenes.
