Golden Severum not eating!

Post by husseinfathali » Sat Sep 17, 2011 10:29 pm

hi, I have got a golden severum two weeks ago, about 15 cm, keeping him in a 120 lit tank. In my tank I have a large coy, a green terror and a large silver shark. He has eaten almost nothing. Just a few days ago, he got white tiny white dot on his fins, but I treat him, and now there is no sign of illness on his body. Now I'm worried about his health. He shows no desire for food, and while he seems to be attracted, he acts follishly and evades the given foods. Please help me.

check water parameters but the tank is to small for the fish you have in .

That tank is way too small and it's probably being bullied buy the shark and Andinoacara rivulatus (green terror).

I have considered your suggestions, and he began to eat like my other fishes.
