Here's my poor little oto. He is a good boy and also has ich. I have him in quarantine and have been dosing paraguard and salt separately.
It's been 2 days since his quarantine and I'm worried he may starve. The temp is at 84 and increasing to 90 over 4 days

Any other suggestions for treating the little guy?

Have you tried giving him a slice of cucumber?

I had one of my Otos just randomly die last week, it was very strange.

>go to the store and buy a big bag of frozen broccoli
>go through the bag and cut off all of the "trunks" of the broccoli
>store these in separate ziploc bag in freezer for future use
>take the biggest one and slice it length wize into wafers
>boil these until soft enough to easily poke through with a fork
>take out of boiling water and allow to cool down
>weight them down so they stay at the bottom of the tank
>feed one to quarantined fish
>feed the others to the rest of the fish

You can also feed him shelled peas that you boiled in water.
