Sicky Zippy

Hay guys!!

I have a sorority and I noticed one of my girls isn't looking so great any more. She has patches on her scales that just look like the color was faded from them. It looks weird. :/ And her fins are clamped, and her has stress striped. NOW, her body looks skinny and deformed. I'm really worried! Here's a link to a video of her. Her names Zip, full name Zippy. Help!!

If you think she might be sick, you should isolate her from the others. It is instinctual among aggressive predatory fish to prey on weak individuals. If the other fish pick up on the fact that she's sick, they will probably all gang up on her. Unfortunately, I can't see the video because of an error or something. Perhaps once you separate her she'll calm down a bit and you'll be able to describe more symptoms.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that! At the moment my extra heated tank is already occupied by my Casanova, so I took a large floating, clear betta jar and floated in the tank. As you can see in the video I am re-loading, she's in there now. I really want to get some java moss!!

well she doesn't seem too bad, maybe just separate her for a while... maybe she was being picked on.

No, she's getting worse. She is barley moving now, her tail is clamped to a point and her body's frailer. She won't eat anything. I'm really worried. :(
