Firstly apologies if you are receiving this in duplicate, or
even triplicate. I have a pair of N. ugandensis that have stopped
eating, although they will mouth food, but will mostly reject it. I have
noticed white faeces from the female. They are becoming hollow bellied.
At the moment they're still active, and interested in food. From the
symptoms, I believe they are suffereing from flagellates, and so have
begun a treatment with Octozin, which I believe contains Metronidazole.
I have a couple of questions. Does anyone disagree with my
diagnosis? I realise this is difficult without seeing the fish, but
there may be alternatives I haven't considered. Untergasser states that
the temperature can be raised to 30-33 deg.C to support the treatment. I
am concerned that this may be too high for my fish, although I suppose
the temp's in drying pools will exceed this. Didn't I once hear that in
the good old days, frying Notho's was the recommended technique for
breeding.However I would rather the fish survived treatment.
Any other advice gratefully received.
