Ok so I posted on here about a week ago describing how Saix has fin rot, and some people told me he has ammonia burn. So I did what you all said and I change his tank every other day now.
But today I found him floating upside down. His nose was pointed at the ground with his butt in the air and he wasn't moving. I was so sure he was dead, but I tapped the tank a little and he woke up.
Is this a sign of him dying? What should I do?
