Yep,..... Rams are often infected with flagellates. I suggest to start a treatment for Bloat as soon as possible. You can use metro or dimetronidazole. Both meds are effective on flagellates at the first stage of fish become ill. Once the stop feeding the chance of healing will be very small. You can dose the entire tank (preferable Q-tank) and soak some dry foods in a mix of tank water and meds to get the meds doing its work from the inside.

If the Bloat treatment doesn't work it can be intestinal worms. Those are les difficult to treat. Flubendazolle is quit save in use. DON'T ever use both meds at the same time!!!
