PostSubject: White lines on BNs belly   Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:43 pm

I was walking around LFs today and saw a BN catfish which caught my eye, its belly was slightly sunken and it had 2 fine white lines running across its belly.
Any ideas on what this could be? Some sort of parasite?

Without pictures it's really difficult to say what may have caused it.

Given that it was showing signs of a sunken belly then it appears to have a nutritional ailment that may or may not be a cause.

working in a fish shop it is most likely cos it is not getting enough to feed. The food generally gets smashed by the top dwellers and the bottom dwellers starve. We have to make sure they get some food.
