"Hello. I have a calico telescope butterfly who is really having a difficult time. She is now in a hospital tank and I am using salt. Every morning she is completely limp, listless, somewhat curved to the side. I am able to hand feed her (mostly dethawed blood worms} She seems pale and thin. I have had her for 1 and 1/2 years and she has not grown much. She does have very large eyes and a deformed mouth. After feeding her she seems completely well again for the rest of the day and then again the next morning I think she might die. I have always made sure she eats well and put her in a net house so she could eat at her own pace. I have several types of food that I rotate {flakes, daphnia {dethawed and freeze dried}, pellets, vegetables} Her tankmates are around the same age but different types {lionheads, orandas, ryukins} and they are thriving. She is now in her own tank though, and will remain there because she is so fragile. With the amount of food she is eating, it would seem she has something inside her that is eating it for her. Please help if you can, I am unable to figure this out."
