Could it be genetics?

Doctor, that is what I was thinking but it just seems more like a wound because wouldn't a genetic defect showed awhile ago?

Olympia, For the fish it is a pretty big wound but for us humans it is tiny.

In the first pic, he is the one farthest to the right side.

Second pic he is in between two other tetras.

When I fed him, his stomach did not turn as round as it used to (it didn't look like he had eaten at all) he had a very hard time swimming after that, almost turning completely upside down. Now he has an easier time with swimming and his body Is not as bent but I am still worried. Is there anything else I can do for him?

I honestly have no idea. I guess if he can eat fine he can go on living.

Unhappy

He has gotten worse. I couldn't find him for an entire day and today, though he is still alive, he is very limp and is not able to swim. I think it is time for him to go. He is suffering lots. S.I.P little one, you put up a good fight for life.
