Of course, saw him at Wal-mart. I need to just stay clear. The more I purchase, the more they buy... but besides that.... I'm not sure what is wrong with him.
His body seems a little thin compaired to his head. He sits at the bottom and he sites upright, spin curved a little, and he is on his tail. (see pic) looks like a lady wearing a dress kind of. He swims the same. I've gotten him to eat a little. He is not very active. He will swim around the bottom of the jar horizontal (spin a little curved), but then to go up, you get what is in the photos.
I at first thought he was just malnourished, but now I'm worried it maybe swim bladder disease.
Any thoughts on how I can help him????
Water temp is 78 degrees. I change out 50% of his water daily (use prime to what I add) and feed him 2 pellets of aqueon mini cichlid pellets (w minerals & trace nutrients). Then a couple blood worms in the evening. He is currently in a large jar that sits within a heated 10 gallon 1/2 full water movement. He has trouble swimming, getting to the top of the jar I thought would help him. My 5 gallon has a for ever pregnant guppy who can't get any fatter in there, once she has her fry I can her and the fry out to their tanks and put him in there and keep the water level low.
Thanks so much for your help. I don't even know what kind he is, the peach could be washed out red... I just would like him to feel better.
