Both my German blue ram and my Bolivian Ram are eating much less. I've noticed that ever since my male German blue passed on (s.i.p) neither of them have acted normal. They both stay by themselves and don't swim around much, but recently they have been hardly eating anything. I have put in shrimp pellets which normally they love but they take one or two nips at it and then they swim away, and when I put flakes in they eat a few and then stop. Anyone have any suggestions on how to help?

Maybe a parasite or worm causing the lack of apatite?

I'm moving them to a 10 with much less fish so I can monitor how much they eat and how much food is available to them. In the 40 gallon they are in there are lots of small schooling fish that are like piranhas when it comes to being fed and it might be part of the lack of appetite.

I moved them to quarantine and I fed them. They seemed to eat a little more but still not much. Here's a pic of them nipping at a dried shrimp. They are so thin.

I got them to eat bloodworms, yay. Do you guys think I can move the female ruby crystal peacock back into the main tank now that the fry are free swimming and eating.

Wife picked this OBZ up last night in Knoxville. Came from LFS owners personal tank in the store. All fish in it marked not for sale but I made him feel bad for me driving 2 hours and not having what I wanted. 😁

Your feeding the rams bloodworms, right. Not the peacocks?
