O have ahd a fish hit his head. His scales did not seem to grow back, but it might have just been slow because i dont notice it much, but im used to it so idk.. I have also handled blind fish, and fish with spinal problems, so If you need help on that, let me know. He seems to be dong okay, the path to a full recovery is often nonlinear.

I don't believe it's bothering him, it's very gentle. It's a Tetra Whisper filter.

How could I identify "buoyancy issues"?
I'd like to know what to look out for. Thanks

Being unable to sink down no matter how hard he tries or unable to swim easily up. Floating on his side or being unable to control his swimming.

Looking like he either floats and cant go down, or looking like he has a weight ttatched to him and cant go up, or trouble controlling up and down motions. Also, look for upside down swimming, has a fish do that once after it was accidentaly smooshed with decor, but he stopped after like 2 mins lol :P

I don't know if he can't swim to the bottom or won't. Yesterday he was at the bottom some, but this morning he's floating at the top. But he's not sideways or upside down. His body is level, but it looks weird to see him float like that.

He's not showing signs of struggle, he's just barely swimming. :/ Tonight we are going to take out a little more of the water and the decorations (except for one in case he needs to hide) in case he is struggling and it isn't visible. He's always in the middle or top. I'm so worried. He wouldn't eat this morning, and we're going to try again tonight. He seems completely uninterested in the food. The only time I can get him to respond is if I go and talk to him, he looks at me in his sweet little way. I just don't want him to be suffering. I need to become a fish veterinarian, so I could tell what is wrong.
