  • Cabomba root questions

    This may need to be moved mods. I have a variety of cabomba in my 55g with angels and barbs as the main inhabitant. A week or so ago I noticed a long stringy whitish poop from one of the angels. I went ahead and treated with prazi pro (1 more day). I just noticed the angels consuming the long roots the cabomba sends down, sometimes they're 12" long or more. Once I saw the behavior it immediately became apparent it was these roots he was pooping out, they look exactly the same.

    So basically, could consuming these roots stop them up? They seem to come out more or less intact, however the poops are not 12" long, more like 3". I always have veggies in the tank should they want to pick at something.

    Looks like it is in the right forum to me!

    I'm not sure if it the roots that is causing it. Could be. I never had issues with my fish eating cabomba. Have you added anything to the tank recently?

      A couple mystery snails!

      I know alot of snail diseases aren't transferable to bony fishes but I heard some parasites were, thus the prazi-pro.

      They were all kind of pecking at it, and one had a good 2" length in his mouth, and they looked so similar! I didn't want to believe your snails had some parasites but they're the only thing changed in months.

        Nah, couldn't have been the snails. Those were bred in my tank.

                    I hate to burst everyone's bubble but no more stringy poops yet, they did eat all the obvious cabomba "feet" so that may have been it or the prazi pro which finished yesterday.
