Sorry for typos I didn't proofread from voice to text also they are very Hardy fish that's why I'm wondering if he is just on his way out I've had him for almost 3 years

Have you tried feeding him on live food something like river shrimp big enough for him to see moving around

I used a pair of aqua planting tweezers with a piece of food that he loves and he did not eat it when I put it in front of his face and now that I moved him around he's laying on his side so I think he's on his way out

The problem was using tap water and additives apparently the tap water in my area had too many contaminants in it even with the additives it wasn't good now that I switched to RO water I haven't had one problem yet

Wait, is this the same system as the 45 gallon jbj? If thatís the case then one trigger shouldnít be in a tank this size let alone three.
