Knitty Smalls Posted January 7 Share Posted January 7 Hey all- New here, and new to community tanks. Recently went to Aquarium Co-Op on Tuesday and picked up a new honey gourami and eight emerald eye rasboras. On Wednesday evening I noticed the gourami was flashing on some plants, not wanting to eat, being shy (he did biuld an insane bubble nest though). I tested my water and everything was within normal limits, I thought he was just adjusting to the new tank. However, tonight I saw him flashing again and some white poop (?) floated up to the surface. I thought it was a worm but when I pulled it out of the tank it was just kind of mucous-like and disintegrated. He still hasn't eaten, just spits pellets out. The rasboras seem unaffected. I'm not too familiar with gourami, but does this sound like parasites? Tank: 10 gallon pH- 6.8-7.2 Nitrates: 10-20ppm Hardness: 150 Nitrite: 0 ppm Ammonia: 0ppm KH/Buffer: 80 Water Temperature: 77-78 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
