    Default Gold Ram acting funny!?


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi,

    i have recently added 2 gold rams to my tank. both been fine for few weeks until today...

    one of them seems to breathing heavy. as if hes trying to chew something that wont go down(?)
    He also has quite stringy poo with traces of what look like blood in his excrement. His buddy seems very protective of him, but there a bit clicky anyway!

    They have been introduced with another pair of german blues and they have been going through the process of fighting for no1 spot. but not fighting so much as fending each other off.


    Any ideas?

    Thanks, alex

    This could be an injury from jaw locker fights too. You may have missed it?

    Long springy poo is either a sign of worms (if it's white) or constipation. Let them fast for a day or two and see if he gets himself cleaned out.
