Okay :( Thank you. He;s only about a 1 year and a half old. I guess I will just have to see if he makes it through tonight. </3

*Edit** I got him to go to the surface to breathe..But I have to tap on the glass,then He will quickly swim up for air and fall back down...He's still having troubles breathing...little movmenet still...<//3

I'm sorry, I really don't have any idea what could be wrong with him unless it's the tumor. I would lower the water level so he can get up to the surface easier and make sure his water is kept clean and warm. I wish I could help more. :(

Thank you. He's still fighting and rushing to the top to breathe. I guess I will just hope and pray he gets better. Thank you all.
