DrSizzle Posted February 23, 2022 Share Posted February 23, 2022 (edited) I've had this awesome pea puffer for about 3.5 years, and its usually very active and shoots right to the feeding area whenever it sees me and follows me around the tank. However, the last 2 days its been acting very lethargic and resting on the bottom of the tank quite a bit. It seems to be swimming like normal and can rise and sink just fine, and I don't see any signs of skin disease. It doesnt look thin either, just really lazy all of a sudden. Another puffer I purchased with this one died last year after showing the same kind of symptoms initially, but it eventually became very pale. I'm wondering if there's anything I should try to keep this puffer from declining or if that would just make things worse. 2 younger pea puffers in the same tank are doing just fine. Tank Details: 60 gallon sandy bottom and lots of plants No NO2 or NO3 detected pH 6.9, KH~15, GH~30 3 pea puffers, 5 furcata rainbows, 3 kuhli loach, 2 siamese algae eater. Everyone seems to get along just fine. Occasionally the puffers chase each other but I dont see any biting. I feed frozen blood worms once in the morning and once at night. Any comments or suggestions are very welcome! Please help me save Pete! Edited February 23, 2022 by DrSizzle Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
