She's actually really perky and active and such a sweetie now. Her personality has really come out! She hasn't been laying at the bottom or anything, but I assume its harder for her to swim now the poor baby :(

I bought Ro a zucchini while I was getting stuff for her medicated food and I was wondering if I was supposed to cook it first? Or do I give it raw?

I think you're supposed to "blanch" it. Which is basically bring water to a boil, and pop it in for 30 seconds to a minute.

Blanching or freezing works. I sliced my zucchini into half circles and frozen them like that. Every once in a while I bring out a half circle, let it thaw and chop it up. One zucchini has lasted me months like this. Have you made the medicated food yet? It.. uh... kinda smelled when I made mine.

I did make the food today for the Maracyn 1 and my hands STILL smell like sardines x.x

For the Maracyn II, I hope I do the measurements right. I suck so bad at math.

Ya. That's one downside of it! My house reaked of them for at least a day. Let us know how Ro eats the medicated food!

The sardines go in the medicated gel food recipe, Olympia. Fish protein is the best for fish to eat, so when we make goldfish food we usually add oily fish like sardines and salmon. Sardines are used in medicated food because they have a stronger odor than salmon. My salmon gel food doesn't smell half as bad as the sardine stuff did.
