Ohjeez, I'm having a lot of trouble with my fishies today :( Yesterday it started with Hippie, who now has clamped fins and won't move around a lot. Now Caspian (his divided tankmate) isn't doing a lot and Shasta (in a different tank) has clamped fins and is being lethargic. I'm not sure what's going on but I need help, these critters mean a lot to me. :(
They're all still eating and chasing my finger. I'm not sure about poo.
