A little concerned here...

For the last few days Minerva has seemed kind of depressed and I have no idea why. She used to be zooming around her tank all the time but now she just sits there, occasionally swimming around. She wouldn't eat this morning either, not to mention her fins look a bit clamped. Anyone know whats going on with her?
