    Default New Redfin Prochilodus not eating

    0 Not allowed!
    I am fairly new to fish keeping, and just bought a 4.5 inch redfin prochilodus 2 days ago. I have had him in quarantine by himself in a bare 10 gallon with an air stone and filtration and have been medicating with AP Pro QuIck Cure as a precautionary measure the last two nights, as I always do with new quarantines (3 days). I have tried feeding him fresh lettuce, "Frozen Seaweed Delight", Top Fin Algae Thins, and Omega One Veggie Rounds. He has not shown an interest in any of the four options. I have never had this kind of fish before, or any herbivores, and am looking for any advice or input. Thanks!

    could it be that the stress of constant relocations has put it off its food?
    you might want to try waiting another day or two before trying to feed again.
    Once it has gotten used to its new surroundings then it will likely get its appetite back.

    beautiful fish, but not for the average tank since they grow to be a foot long.

    That has been my hope, but I've never had a fish take two days to eat before. How long can he go without eating?

    I'll be housing him in a 75 gallon, and he will be my center-piece fish.
