OK. He has me stumped. One of my giants stopped eating almost two weeks ago. I cannot see any outward signs of a problem. He's not bloated and I don't see any funk on him. I tried fasting him, I tried different foods, API General Cure thinking perhaps it was an internal parasite, I tried tetracycline thinking perhaps it was an infection of some sort. I was going to try kanaplex when it gets here in a day or two thinking maybe it's bacterial and tetracycline didn't get it. He's just lethargic and not eating. I got some water setting up outside to get some mosquito larvae so I can see if he'll go after something live. Any ideas?
