    Hi guys

    All of a sudden my Antias Goldies look old, frail and undernourished.
    They still eating and swimming but look weak.
    Scales look old.
    All the other fish are healthy and well
    All water parameters are good.
    Any advice will be appreciated?

    Hi Mohammad

    you need to be more specific with this.. please post actual values..

    also a pic of the system will help as well as a pic of the fish in question

    do you feed frequently? if so what and how often.. do you enrich your foods with vitamins?

    Goldies need feeding 4-5 times a day. Try getting ocean nutrition lobster eggs really good for them.

    I feed lobster eggs once a day ... And alternate between frozen brine, cyclops and flakes for the second feed, (2 x a day) ... Use garlic in all foods except flakes.

    Just my 2c
