I did have ich a while back but it has been cured for a couple of months now. The internal worms ended up being seaweed, the fish was crapping weird poop and it finally came out lol, so I never treated for that.

I did have flukes more recently though and ive been treating the main tank with prazipro. I stopped it last week after about 5 weeks of treatments. Could I be because of prazipro? Im not trying to change things, im willing to do anything, but if thr angel doesnt eat soon, qt or not, shes gonna die

It is odd that it stopped eating about the same tome you stopped treating, but that is probably coincidental. Is it looking bad or acting differently now?

My Lionfish just recently went about a week without showing any interest in food. It would drop right in front of it and it could care less. Then, it decided food is a good thing again and now goes after it as soon as it hits the water. I have no idea why. Hopefully your angel does the same.

Well, it's actually happened one time before I believe, but she ate the next day after I started running cArbon. With this last prazi dose, it wasn't the case. I hope my she starts eating like your lionfish

but, today's behavior looks super promising!! She's acting about 90% normal now. She swam to the top with the others when I turned the pump off just like she used to (she usually hid in the rocks when I fed this past week). Although she didn't eat, she looked at it and got excited like she knew it was food, but just didn't eat it. I'm pretty sure tomorrow she will eat, that will be day 6 without food. Yikes!!

Here's what I think: the prazipro was stressing her out and that's why she wasn't eating, especially after doing a bunch of prazi treatments, it makes sense that her appetite diminished this much. Since running a ton of chemical filtration, she's acting mostly normal, so I'm convinced it was the meds in the water at this point.

She sill hasn't eaten, but I have more hope than ever now!! It kinda makes me uneasy about doing one more prazi treatment next week to make sure the flukes are gone, but I really should.

Hope it pulls through. I notice that you turn your pumps off at feeding time and I've never done that, so just want know if it's ok leave on

I turn it off because there's so much flow the food will blow all over and get stuck in the rocks and stuff.
