How old is your fish (approximately)? I purchased him from Walmart about 1 1/2 weeks ago. He's still rather tiny. D:
I got him (Freddie) from Walmart about 1 1/2 weeks ago and he was healthy and had his tail all fanned out, and when I first put him in the tank he was fine, just swimming around and checking everything out. Then his fins got all clamped up and he started swimming around less. I've done a few water changes and they haven't helped at all. It's worse today, he isn't swimming around much, mostly just sitting at the bottom and coming up for air.
