We have had Bilbo just over two weeks and he's been eating well and full of life but today he's been very still and not to happy.
Thinking back over the last few weeks I can say that I haven't noticed much poop, there was a poop in the tank about 5 days ago and it was about 5mm long and 2mm wide.
I now it sounds a bit stupid but how often do they poop and could Bilbo have a blockage.

Poo tends to disintegrate really quickly. It turns into 'poo dust', and doesn't look like a turd. lol.

If Bilbo's not floating, I wouldn't be thinking about blockages.

He's about 4 inchs long and he's fed a small amount once a day, the temp is between 22Co and 24Co and thats with ice packs.

He's not floating or bloated

Did you cycle your tank prior to adding him to it? What are your water parameters for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

The tank was cycled and the parameters were tested last week and they were all 0ppm. I just checked the water again and it was not good, Ammonia was 0ppm, nitrit and nitrat are through the bloody roofClick the image to open in full size., I've just done a 50% water change and will keep an eye on the levels every day over the next week, Any ideas as to what could have cause this??.
