clown won't eat
the clown in my qt, which is being treated with cupramine for apparent ich, won't eat anything.

the first day I had him he ate frozen brine, and now nothing

I've tried 4 different kinds of food now.

How many days? The copper may damper his appetite. Try lacing the food in garlic juice.

I'm currently having this same problem with my clown. Last night, I dropped in some Formula Two (the new formula that contains 2% garlic) and I saw him at least TRY to eat, so I'm hoping mine is snapping out of it.

When QShark says "garlic juice", is this something you can buy in a store, or do you have to make it yourself? I would think straight garlic would be way too strong.

I use Kent Garlic Extreme on every once in a while. My fish go nuts when I soak their food in it!

HE ATE! I gave him some live brine and he's snapping them up. I'm not sure whether he or I are happier.
