I got a new starcki from liveaquaria.
I just finished a formalin dip and put him in quarantine.

He wasn't looking too good. He sat on the bottom of the tank.
Now he looks a little better. There is antibiotic and metronidazole to prevent bacteria and protozoan infection.

ThRoewer, I think you mentioned that your starcki came with flukes?

I'm not sure what it was that killed my last batch of Starcki from LA (QM). It could have been flukes or something bacterial.

Yesterday I got a Yellow Assessor and it died before I could even give it a formalin dip. I checked it with the microscope, but couldn't find a thing.

The previous one, for which this one was supposed to be a partner, is doing fine..

update.

Today the starcki ate some pellets.

The chrysostomus bannerfish is still not eating. it tried the pellets and spat them out yesterday. Today it won't touch it.

I will try some frozen food soon but not now as I am on a hectic work schedule and that can pollute the water.
