Yes I QT'd the plants and shrimp. Not the snails :( something is definitely wrong. He won't eat and he just sits at the top. No external symptoms. Maybe loss of weight. Should I start treatment? Could it be internal parasites? I have noticed stringy white poop. I'm so worried. I'm gonna breakdown the tank and clean it. Should I do a 100% change?

I do notice that he flares normally every night. It is his routine before his tank light gets turned off. He will flare and his tail opens and he is just so cute!
So its a 5 gallon?

If his poo is white and stringy treat him with Epsom salt. He has internal parasites.

We should see if there was something that stressed out his immune system.

I'm very sorry to inform that my Mufasa has passed away tonight! Thank you all who tried to help. I feel very horrible and feel very much at fault. I wish I could have done things differently and taken better precautions. He doesn't look any different. He was my little baby and I already miss him so much! I can't stop crying but i know he isn't suffering anymore! Again, thanks for trying to help.
