I bought a pair of apistos and the male died within 3 days, he would eat his food than spit it out and then one day he could just barely move, the female is now doing the same thing and has long string white poop so i am treating with API general cure becuase i think it might be flagelletes. Ive read this is common in new apistos and was wondering if you knew anything about it.
