Hey Elaine can you describe the "problems with swimming" in a bit more detail please? Any other physical symptoms (ragged finnage, high rate of respiration etc.)?

Cake or death?

You say you have had it about 4 years now, how many others do you have? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
How big is it now?
Have you tried frozen foods with garlic in, or added garlic to the foods, this can sometimes help/entice get their appetite back a bit. It's NOT a cure but is good for the digestive tract apparently in a similar way to humans.
Cloudy eye, i have saved alot of fish with just tonic salts alone, cloudy eye, w/s but combined with other products it "may" also help.
Without seeing the fish physically its hard for us to recommend something so we can only speculate at the moment /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />
Sometimes but not all, cloudy eye can be be a secondary infection due to an internal infection, this may also be affection the fish in other ways too.
I'm thinking Melafix and tonic salts but dont try it yet as i'm just guessing right now. I'm no vet either , just trying to get more info /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
Reply soon please so we can try and help you and your fish /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
Why was it being picked on though, was it just due to it being unwell?
