Sounds more than likely that they have internal parasites....

The best way to treat it is to soak their food in Metronidazole and Garlic Guard...The Garlic Guard will make the food irresistible after it has been soaked in the Metronidazole...

Seachem and API make these products.....

More often it's a sign of either eating too much or food with too high a protein. Try giving them a bit of live food at least once a week, particularly Daphnia, if they are big enough to take it.

Hi Bill , i reckon you are right , the food i am feeding is about 40% protien and feeding 3 times a day , having said that the food i put into the tank is gone in less than 1 minute. Will have a look in sh tomorrow to see if they have any suitable live food . Robert

That should be good for the fry, Robert, give them that once a day and something different with a bit less protein the other two feeds.
