Thumbs down Equinox ate a... what now?!

Well, yesterday, right after I came back from school, my parents told me that...

Equinox ate a spider...

I asked them if they were kidding about that, but the answer was no every time...

Today, after school, I went to see my little Equinox, no behavior changes, but Equinox has a white belly. I'm somewhat worried...

Can you help me? Pleaseee??

Well, I don't think a little spider would hurt him. I suggest an ES treatment for him.. 1-3 teaspoons per gallon. Do daily 100% changes and remember to premix the salt in a different container each time. You might as well fast him too if you want to.

depending on how big it was, I wouldn't worry, they probably eat spiders all the time in the wild. The white belly probably indicates that he doesn't need to be fed for a while.
I am curious though, as to how he got it, did someone put it in there, or did it crawl in there and your fish jumped up and got it?
