Hi Lester,

Based on your report.
Could it be too much salt in your water,that caused the poos to float.
We have to check one thing at a time.

Just an advise.

It has to do with the type of pellets that you feed your fishes. I usually feed my fishes with Hikari and JRL. It's only when I feed floating pellets (rarely but I do) that I see floating poos on my water. As Choco explained, it could be due to the fishes swallowing some air when they are gasping for the floating food. This is nothing to be alarmed about. wink.gif

Eating air? irritated gills? flukes?
