I need to stop trying to count but I’m sure there are now only 7 pandas. Or maybe I’m paranoid.

Also I’ve noticed one of the rams is looking much darker all the time. Is this a sign of stress?

Unfortunately, that BR does not look good. Dark colour, bent shape, hollow stomach - either very sick or has not been happy with his/her home for a while.
I don't know about BR, so can't point you towards what might be wrong - sorry.

He/she needs to be on its own and fed up with good protein by the looks, although it could be a long way gone wrong.... :(

It has been eating, I’m guessing it just isn’t happy in general. I’m going to rearrange some of the rocks so that it’ll have a cave facing the back of the tank if that makes it any happier. And ensure some food goes towards the back as I tend to feed from front compartment as all fish come there anyway.

I don’t have any other tank for it to go in. (I only have room for a nano tank in the future). I’ll keep an eye on him/her.

In other news I’m still saving for the Fluval Plant 3.0.

Going to give floating plants another try - I’ll use this to protect them from my filter flow / air stones:

Could you set up something in a large plastic box , like those storage boxes you get from the cheapo shops ? Always good to have one on standby too.

If he's eating then he has internal parasites and needs treating.
His shape is pretty bad really. :(

What treatment would you recommend? Is there something generic as obviously I don’t know how to diagnose!

also if they are internal parasites could they have been present all this time? I haven’t added anything new to the tank since getting the fish.

They will have been present all the taime.
Either Interpet Internal parasite med or (I can never remember this right) the Waterlife one, I THINK it's Sterazin......but it might be one of the others, check on the labels. ;)
