Okay the first is him when He stops moving most of the time he just flips over to one side. im guessing this is swim bladder and that i need to not feed him for a few days.

Oh his bottom fin along his abdoman is that red to anyone? (third picture) and what does it look like

The secondpicture on his cheek i am wondering if thats velvet or just some sort of matalic glimmer from his scales.

Is his spine a bit curvy or is it just the pics? His fins may have red in them - could be a splash of color though not a disease. Did you just get this guy?

How long have you had this pretty boy? Whats his tank setup like? Size? temp? Etc? The red along the abdomen is just red wash and part of his coloration. And I believe the metallic scaling on his cheek is color as well, velvet wouldn't be that pronounced, it looks like a fine gold powder.

Thisll be the second day ive had him.

It looks like hes ready to join his newly divided tank. :)
Ill wait till his bloating goes down a bit then ill introduce him. His tank mate is a female, shes on the other side of the divider, and a ghoast shrimp.

I was just worried abut velvet althugh he is pretty matalic.

Thanks guys :)
