My Mickey Mouse Platy, Walter, is having some serious issues.
He was beautiful this morning, after my cold water tank got a bloodworm feast last night. I fed them a small amount of flake food this morning and when I returned from work (about 12hrs. passed between the feeding and my return) Walter was swimming completely upside-down, with my other MM Platy, Oswald, following him around warding off the danios (who are awaiting a transfer to my tropical tank) who were trying to nip at Walter.
I immediately moved Walter to my hospital tank and I'm not feeding him for two-three days, following by a cooked, shelled pea, which works as a laxative. I really hope he'll pull through. He and Oswald are always keeping each other company - I worry that Oswald will be terribly lonely without Walter.
Do you guys have any recommendations?
