is cannabis good for fish?

A lot of field herpers seem to go fishing, or maintain aquariums, as much as they do herp! Any and all things fish are welcome in this forum.

is cannabis good for fish?

Post by Severinus796 » January 17th, 2019, 1:26 am

Hi guys, I have a question. I have angelfish and I tried to feed him, but it seems that my fish is not eating. I tried to feed him with all types of fish foods, but Im losing hope. I did some research on my own and found out that feeding fish pot oil does give their metabolism a boost. Like this article about a marijuana strain https://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/trainwreck/. If this is true I can't find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks

You should look into more typical reasons why your angel fish isnt eating and try to correct those.

This information is widely available. Being newly acquired, Water chemistry, Temp, Other fish species dynamics. Look at those.

Some under the radar reasons I will mention, as the reason why i am responding to this post. Reflective stressors/images, especially with adult angels. It should be mentioned that adult angels prefer to be in pairs.

Old aquarium equipment, ie; submergible electronics, sometimes breach in old units and emit electrical current through the water. You may or may not be able to detect it. Examine cords and seams. Throw away old heaters that present with corrosion.

Refrain from pulling equipment out by the cords. Over time along with the water wear it can cause this common yet rarely identified problem.

If fish show inordinate slim coat problems and ulcerations, and there is no nipping happening or new fish, rule out the electrical breach.

Canister filters are the most frequent culprit, and old heaters.

I can provide some situations on request, and the first time, was a eureka moment, so I kept a lookout for it and didn't automatically always think "Disease".

as for your actual question , I got nothin. I just used your post to share this about something I've seen with long term tanks and established fishes
