My fantail Blub has made poos that are anywhere from his body length (1.5") to SIX TIMES his body length....and when he does they are stringy and light to white color . they say 'the amount he will eat in 5 minutes" but i feel like he goes so crazy at feeding time that he'll eat the whole bag of hikari if i put it in there... i feed him a combo of Hikari Staple Hikari Gold Staple Saki-HIkari romaine lettuce bits green pea mashed without shell blood worms every 2 weeks (maybe 10 tiny worms) Also I feed him a combo of the Hikari foods together. i would say that i feed him a total of 8 baby pellets at a time Please advise if any of this seems wrong Thanks!
I started repashy soilent green about 2.5 weeks ago with my 2 GF. My thoughts are if you have a fish with constipation/floatiness or just a poor digestive system this food is a good switch from pellets. Its not a cure-all as I hoped it might be. I still have to be super careful to not overfeed. I am dividing up about .75gram between the two of them along with about 1/4" green bean and a pea every day as the repashy wasn't enough by itself to get rid of his constipation. Any more food then that and it starts over. Their air eating is way down though they still do it after meals. What I've noticed the most improvement in is probably his floatiness that I have been very worried would turn into permanent swim bladder issues. They both swim throughout the tank way more than they used to. At night, after I turn off the hood light, he spends the rest of the night slowly cruising a couple inches above the bottom of the tank, going round and round the tank. Its very nice to see this. She still floats in the current at night while she sleeps but she has never had the digestive issues as him. I have been hesitant to add any other different foods in yet. I need to figure out the exact amount I can give him before seeing the constipation/floaty issues but I think I'm close at .75gram divided into 3 meals along with veggies. I am definitely finding out less is more with food with them. If you have a fish with these kind of issues, repashy is worth trying.
