Just to FishyFishy89's list if I remember correctly giving them daphnia is a good way to flush out their system

with two of my guy its pretty easy for them to get bloat/and or SBD. I feed them every other day and when if feed them I give them 4 pellets. It seems to work well for them.
It might be that he needs a day without food just to kind of empty his stomach
Ok I will try that. I do fast him every Monday but Maybe I will fast him every other day to see what happens. =)

Will freeze dried foods work? I heard that that could be bad for them and the frozen is better. Cause I do have three different treats for them.

this is what I have: http://www.petmountain.com/photos/pr...0/-/-12-oz.jpg

hm, I've heard freeze dried foods encourage parasites. My fish only ever get it as a treat. Usually a once a month kinda thing.

I give mine one treat once a week. do you think that is too much? Maybe I should cut back on the treats? I have not given them a treat this whole week, I know that.

I'm not entirely sure. But reading that encouraged parasites, I decided to give it very sparingly and mark on the calendar when I did in case parasites do come up.

I also heard that freeze dried food can sometimes cause sbd since a lot of it is air

Took the plug and grabed this guy. Not the best looker but he's a lfs rescue and was the healthiest looking of the bunch. I actually prefer plakats but all of theirs were too far gone to save. Pardon the blur, he won't hold still for a photo...the greenish color underjaw/'neck' is actually white. Labeled as a delta tail, his finage seems like a mix between delta and vail. Shares a well planted 10g tank with 6 otos which he will occasionally flare at and chase.
