One of my big male Acei has an extremely concave belly, and has been pooping stringy white poop. He eats very well, knock on wood. Should I feed him Metronidazole food? A couple of other fish in the tank had the exact same symptoms, except not as skinny, a while back. They responded well to Metro and were completely better after a week. Should I worry about feeding him Metro? Any help would be appreciated.

Metro is usually called for if the fish is not eating.

I would look for other options since your fish are eating. Have you tried epsom salts?

if you can get new life spectrum hex sheild, it would be a good option. Hex shield contains epsom salt, metro, and garlic. If you cant get the food, epsom salt or metro soaked food would be the next option.
