GisheryGoodness Posted September 13, 2022 Share Posted September 13, 2022 So I'm having trouble with my platys eating the bottom feeders food like bug bite crumbles and algae wafers and I don't know how to make them stop. I think it's causing some constipation/bloating issues. I've tried adding it after turning lights out and they still go after it. Water conditions are good so them eating everything is the only thing I can think of that's causing the bloating/constipation issues. I've also tried not feeding for 3 days then feeding just spirula and that seemed to get them back to well, normal poops and size but then they go right back to eating food that's not theirs and having the long stringy poop and looking bloated. I really don't know what else to do or what I can do. Any advice? Oh the other food is for the cory cats, bn pleco and mystery snail. I also worry they might not get enough fppd because of the greedy little platys.
