Just checked on Taco. He was lying on his side at the bottom of the tank and floated up slowly for air. I lowered the water level to just a few inches and took the heater out (I'd cook him if I left it in).

At the rate he's going, I wouldn't be surprised if he passed in the night. If he recovers, it'll be a God-given miracle.

I'm out for the night, folks. Updates in the morning. Thanks for all of your well-wishes, support and prayers, y'all. I really appreciate it a lot (and so does Taco, I'm sure).

Good morning, y'all.
Just checked on Taco.

HE'S STILL ALIVE.


The gosh darn fish can't seem to make up his mind on living or not, so he's hanging in there! Which I'm a bit glad about, but also very concerned.

So what's my next step? Do I euthanize him and put him out of his misery? Feed him something? Let him float awkwardly at the top of his tank for another week, months perhaps? Please help.

I would offer some food to see if he'll eat it. I'm glad he's still hanging in there.

Yeah, I would offer food. Maybe see how he does for another day or so before you make up your mind to euthanize him.

Didn't show any interest in food at all. :(

His condition hasn't changed (nor has it worsened).
