My flowerhorn female is more than 4 years old and I'm not aware of its life.
But since last couple of days, it is not moving. It does not eat at all and just stands in one corner of the aquarium. This is happening since last 20-25 days.
Initially, I thought it would be normal that it does not eat. But as the no of days increased, and I am seeing that its movement has slowed down, am worried.
Not sure that is the problem.
It has become white in color. There is some whitish layer coating on the eyes.
Here are some snapshots.
Would request some senior members to please help me to save my fish
And, one more thing - since last 2 days, in the evenings, it is lying down sideways (in sleeping posture) - which is really worrying me
Awaiting quick response please
Warm Regards...Rajesh Bhapkar

Your flowerhorn is suffering from Hexemita disease.
Please treat with Metrogyl400(used for deworming). You can buy this in local pharmacy.
I dont know your tank size .Assume 1 tablet for each day followed by 50% water change the next day,
continue this for 5 days .don't feed first 3 days.From 4th day try give 1 or 2 pellets .it should eat.
I tried this for my FH and it worked very well.
