 Treat with metronizadole and/or flubendazole. I suspect that the 
 females may of contracted some internal parasites from the blackworms 
 and daphnia. They may explain the bellysliders too.
I agree with Tyrone. I posted the same problem with my guentheri 6 weeks ago, 
and I lost them all. They just refused to eat any live food offered and 
eventually wasted away. When I asked Rosario LaCorte about it, he told me he 
just lost a pair  of South American killies the same way. His diagnosis was 
internal parasites from the blackworms. Try the medication and let us know 
how it works.
