    Hi All,

    I have a Longhorn Cowfish with some issues. I have had Big Bill for about a year now and recently he has had some issues with ich. I have a saltwater aquarium with only live rock and one other scopus.

    I had moved Bill to a hospital tank and his yellow color came back and since I medicated the water, his ich improved quickly. He is, however, not eating much anymore. He is becoming "hollow". When I put him back in the aquarium he generally hangs out near the bottom of the tank and doesn't move much. I just turned off the filter and put in some mysis shrimp, he made no effort to get any. I put a thawed krill on the side of the tank, he took one bite and went back to the bottom of the tank.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    How is it doing? May need some time before eating normally provided it is cleared of infestation and/or other possible complications.

    How are its eyes? Pics/vid??
