Ken's Premium Super Color Pellets 1.5mm
THOSE are the pellets I saw. Was thinking of picking them up. I feed flakes to primarily all the fish but My BB gobies get worms. Of course the other fish will get a few even using the turkey baster.
Well when my new heater comes in Im going to piece together a simple QT tank out of basically a rubbermaid container. That way when its not in use I can pack it all together throw the lid on and store it.
Anyway he still hasn't shown ANY spots or bad movement. He eats normally and swims fine.
One of my BB Gobies is def getting sick. He was never quite full color from the store and always had a semi transparent look to him.
He recently began turning his nose at the bloodworms. My second one is like an ox and AS SOON as the turkey baster hits the water he swims right up like a baby to a bottle and waits.
Between the seconds pale complexion and not eating Im getting worried leaving him in there. He will still come out "to eat" but just doesnt grab anything anymore. I thought his eyes were looking hazy as well but it comes and goes.
I recently started adding a seachem stress coat additive that says it helps with healing just in case.
Seachem StressGuard 500 ml
When I can set up my QT, if he still looks bleck and is not eating I may plop him in there and dose a bit of salt, since I read they can be slightly brackish anyway. Perhaps it might perk him up. They are a pretty tough little fish and I doubt the moving will bother him much. Plus alone I can monitor his eating better and be sure hes getting the food before the others.
All the fish now know the turkey baster and start diving as soon as it goes in even when I flake first to distract them. I may move the gobies to my puffer nano when I set it up since it would just be easier to feed them in general together.
