Im beginning to get frustrated with having all these sick fish. I try to take really good care of them. My boy is acting crazy, he will madly dash up to the surface, and swim around some, gills moving like crazy the entire time. Sometimes he lounges on the bottom, and sometimes he falls into his plants. No loss of color or anything. What is wrong with him?
