Frost Dying?

So one of my females in my sorority is looking kinda weird. I found her laying on the bottom of the tank lifeless. No fin fin movement at all! No gills movement... NOTHING. I tapped and tapped and tapped nothing... I thought she was dead... I was wrong. I grabbed the net and grabbed her and put her into the cup i got her in (or another ct... who knows) and now shes just laying there... shell move around a bunch for a sec then sit on the bottom not moving. I tried to feed her , she wouldnt eat, not even blood worms! omg! So now i have her on my desk in the cup in front of me so i may be with her for her last night... if she doesnt make it... not sure what her deal is... she seems alright but then stops moving and just goes up for air thats it.... it seems like all she wants to do is rest her head? Its weird. Any way, i hope she makes it, shes so tiny and cute...

Here are a few pics of her:







Since ive typed this she hasnt moved :(

Ill keep you all updated!

Oh no! She is such a pretty little thing! Can you see any signs of fungus or anything?

I really don't know much about that, I hope somebody else can tell you. Perhaps a bacterial infection?
