    Hi Jay, do the pair seem to want to spawn again? What are they doing besides not eating? I may move your thread and ask you to complete the disease questionnaire.

    Pair appetite reduces greatly when they are carrying fry. If it's only been 2 or 3 days, I don't think there's anything to worry about. If they are showing other signs of illness then I would do as Pat asks and complete the questionnaire. If there were a water related issue, the fry would have serious issues before the parents would...

    You'll probably be separating them in the near future, so I would just make sure the water is good and clean and keep an eye on them...

    They seem to fight sometimes but often they have fries on their body

    I get a kick reading through the posts of folks having problems and look at what their feeding and wonder if I'm not at simply parahia forum
