 Hi  All
 I  bought  my  second  albino  flower  horn  from  a  lfs  almost  10  days  back..till  date  he  has  not  eaten  a  single  thing..he  still  looks  very  full  bodied  and  active  and  has  still  got  his  full  colour...
 Have  tried  everything  from  prawns,beef,pellets  to  feeders..nothing
 Any  Suggestions

 If  its  not  a  blocked  intestine  or  a  bacterial  thing,  I  would  a  try  put  a  prawn  on  a  stick  and  try  wriggling  it  right  under  his  face.  
 I  had  to  do  that  to  my  wild  caught  clownfish  when  they  didn't  know  that  what  I  was  giving  them  was  food.
 
 Or  maybe  put  him  in  a  place  where  he  can  observe  other  fish  feeding.  I  would  put  some  dither  fish  in  the  tank  but  I'm  not  sure  it  would  work  with  a  LH.  
 Generally  a  shy  fish  will  start  eating  if  he  sees  others  feeding.

 Ask  the  LFS  what  they  were  feeding  it.If  you  try  that  it  will  recognise  it  and  hopefully  start  eating.  If  you  put  in  dither  fish  they  may  become  feeder  fish  ROFL

 Actually  you  could  try  that.   Why  not  give  him  some  feeders  ,  and  see  if  he  goes  for  them?

 HAMZA  ...  Cheer Up  
 
 GIve  some  small  live  fishes  to  him..  If  he  eats,  it  mean  he  is  perfectly  allright..  If  he  dont,  then  he  may  be  having  some  internal  parasite..
 
 For  curing  internal  parasite  u  can  use  METRONIDAZOLE  tabs  or  even  u  can  use  AZOO  Anti  Bacteria  Tabs/Powder  for  4-5  days..  Thumb Up

 yes
 LBW  means  live  blood  worms  but,  they  should  be  properly  cleaned  or  dis-infected.
 What  is  the  size  of  the  fish?
