about a week ago I noticed my little guy wasn't swimming around the tank like he normally does. He just sits at the bottom. I can't see any other physical symptoms except he's thinner and duller. This morning, I noticed he can't seem to stay upright like his equillibrium is off.
any advice is welcome. I'm pretty concerned.
