Re: Ameiurus melas stop eating

My tank mesure 150 cm x 40 cm x 60cm (400 liters net, 450 liters brut)
Oscars are 3" and carp 11" but the carp went go to the pond.
I find this is a sufficient volume for black bullhead.

Re: Ameiurus melas stop eating

the catfish is dead.
After an autopsy, it turned out that he was sterile (gonads no developped) and his swim bladder was abnormally swollen and hard.
How to avoid swim bladder problems in the future ?

Ok. Wafers are eaten by carp and oscars in less one hour and the catfish went go to eat at the same time.
No plastic in my tank so it is impossible that he is eat a plastic.
Usually, this belly is less inflate.
I post the result of amminia test as soon as I can.

Re: Ameiurus melas stop eating

I was wrong, the nitrite are to 0.05 mg/l. I forgot a 0.
I make a change of water yesterday and a cleaning of filters.
But no improvement.
The carp and two Astronotus ocellatus continue to eat except bullhead catfish.
