I starting treating for IPs today, but the odd thing is, other than sunken-in they seem fine, one seems nice and fat and the other two are skinny even though they all eat like pigs.

Keep treating daily, it's great they eat lots, more mess will get in
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

yeah, luckily they didn't seem to notice the meds at all, the fat little buggers :D

EDIT: I sorta forgot when I put the food in that there were still some ghost shrimp, luckily I strained the worms and everything, but at least on shrimp ate they food that hit the ground... I was positive that they wouldn't make it the night, but they all seem happy as ever :o

well, the puffers were doing great, ips going away fattening up, but during feeding today I was one puffer short the largest male, lewis, has vanished without a trace D: I'm really worried, I can't find a body but the ghost shrimp could have gotten to his body before me... I don't think he's hiding, but maybe a miracle will happen...

EDIT: I found him, he was hiding, and came out... but he's VERY pale and slow moving his colors are all washed out :( I'm not sure what to do
