6-wk fry with difficulty swimming

Hi, all.

As I fed my fry just now, I noticed that one of the smallest of the bunch is having a really hard time staying horizontal--he has to swim hard to do anything other than float vertically, head-up. What would be causing this? Is it something I can treat? He seems to look normal to me, aside from being on the small side....

Could be SBD. I have one in my tank of 7 week olds. You could take him out and feed him a very small amount over the next few days and see if it helps. If it ever becomes kinda wide spread then it is likely you are over feeding.
