this is regarding the same male I posted about a while back that had ragged fins for no apparent reason.
I got up this morning and noticed he was just sitting on the bottom of his tank with clamped fins. He has never acted this way since I've gotten him, not even when he first came home from the pet store. I immediately isolated him in a 1/2 gallon (I'm sorry, but that's the only sized hospital tank I have right now) This is when he started sitting at the bottom of the tank vertically. It's like he's possessed. He swims up for air, and then floats back down. He was okay last night.
