Yes, I feed sinking pellets for the rest of the fish and I notice a few of them do get down to the bottom. I previously thought this may of even the problem that they are eating too much protein so I haven’t fed any of the other fish since yesterday.Try to feed some vegs nevertheless.
Don't know if that is the cause (and the ted spots are worrying to me) but it might need some other minerals/vitamins than only out algae. They are omnivores and not algaevores. So don't forget some protein (bloodworms shrimppellets etc....) for there well being.
Okay I’m boiling some peas right now and I’m going to throw some in and hopefully he gets some.Given it a thought. Be sure the smallest one gets its share. I have three BN's in and the less dominant one got severely bloated as well. Decided to throw in more vegs / food than I first did.
If it was that I am not sure but it recovered great. First bloated, second now !
