    My Volitan didn't want to eat last night and tonight his eyes are cloudy kind of like glaucoma which is probably why he didn't want to eat. Any suggestions?

    All good stuff and I appreciate the knowledge, but I'm still left with questions.
    1) This thread appears to be about four years old. Any new info since then?
    2) I think I can rule out the lighting as I'm running T-5's 10K white and actinic along with white and blue LED's.
    3) He's been in the tank for months now, so I'm assuming Ich would have presented before now.
    4) He did eat tonight, so I'm hoping he's on the mend, but not as much as normal.
    5) So obviously I need to vary his diet more. I typically feed krill every three days and live guppies once every week to two weeks (depending on availability) to allow him to hunt.
    6) If it is Ich (unsure) I should dose copper to start?
    Any and all input is greatly appreciated!

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    The thread posted is an excellent start. I would also go to Lion fish Lair for assistance, you'll find more definitive and update information.

    If you are going to feed it fw fish(not good) use mollies.Guppies will eventually cause fatty liver disease in these fish.
