    I'm very concerned about one of my female cherry barbs, she has been fine all the time in the tank but suddenly has stopped eating , about a week now, and shes starting to thin out :(
    All the others are fine and eating great, water parameters are good 0-0-20... so was wondering whether to separate her or not? The others don't seem to mind her, but she has me very concerned now, there is no sign of disease etc.....so any opinions would help, many thanks in advance :)

    Maybe she's just getting old........ their average lifespan is about 4 years.
