Dying of old age?

Post by lopinto » Mon Jul 26, 2010 11:30 am

:( I have an 11-year-old dojo loach which has no health problems all these years. Physically there are no changes in him, but he isn't eating and keeps keeling over. When I think that he's died, he'll move. Usually if I go away for a while I find him in a different position, but then he keels over again.

I'm assuming that he's dying of old age. The other fish in the tank seem fine. As I said there are no signs on his body of disease. Any advice?

I have no advice for you. Wait for another to come along. I just wanted to say to make him comfortable. Mine sleep in plants. You must have given him great care for 11 years. Good luck.
