I have just taken in my cousins fish as they are busy with moving house and the fish looked a little neglected. They will take him back when things settle down.
I am a little worried as he has been darting and twitching on and off for a few days and only eaten twice in nearly a week. Also his fins look clamped. I dont know what is wrong or how to help him. Please help little Rex.
