no. unfortunately she seems to be getting worse. she isnt eating at all anymore. im gonna most likely get some levamisole this weekend. if they have camallanus worms, that will do it. most other parasites should respond to a parziquantel treatment. if the levamisole does nothing, ill turn to sulfathiozole as a hail mary because there is nothing else i can do. im really ripping out my hair trying to save her. and him too. he is also sick and exhibiting the same concave belly and distended anus, but not as far along. and he is still eating a little at least.
if she dies, im getting a necropsy done to know what the **** is doing this.

Well If you didn't live 2 hours away I'd say that if your female dies you can have one of mine. My male paired up with the other one so now they just tag team the other female, pestering her all day. She's lost most of her color because she's the subdominant female. She's a true German blue ram that was bred in Germany. She's the one on top in the picture. But I hope they both pull through and you won't have to get more

Not to hijack thread, but wish you were closer because I'd take that female off your hands.

Sucks to hear that those GBRs are sick, they are beautiful.

temporary tanks for the time being...
