    Exclamation My front is not eating

    0 Not allowed!


    I have 3 fronts. The largest is around 7" The problem is that the tank was treated for fin & tail rot, and now the large male is not eating. This has gone on for over a week. I recently had to transport my tank to another location. I did the normal chlorine removal, refilled the tank, and the tank is cyrstal clear. I even did a ph test and the readinds gave me 8.3-8.4. Can any one with knowledge of why he is not eating, give me some helpfull advise on what the problem might be, and how I might be able to get this guy to eat again.

    The paramaters i know is the ph. I do not have any kits to test for the rest of them. All my other fish seem to be doing just great. I feed the kelp/spirolena pellets & spiralina flakes.

    Sounds like he is stressed over something. You say you emptied the tank? did you perhaps change the filter media and start a cycle again? may want to post this in the african cichlid section for more replies.

    Yes actually i did. After removing the medication, i used the normal carbon to remove the meds. In my hot magnum i removed the amocarb and put in fluvals ceramic rings to start a strictly biological filtration. My emperor 400 still has the carbon pad in it and the other containers in it have carbon as well. The water is extreemly clean and the ph is in the parameters as it should be.

    what about the sponges/biomedia in your filter?? did you change these out? thats where all your good bacteria are. If you did, you're starting your cycle all over again... fish do not like this and get stressed very easily. Carbon doesn't really matter much at this point.
