I discovered Hippie acting a bit off today/yesterday, and now I'm worried about him. :( His fins seem to be clamped and he's less active. Still eating though, and sometimes he swims and unclamps them. I'm not sure what's going on- I didn't change his water for a few days cause I installed a new sponge filter- and then a heater. I put him in a bowl with some Epsom, maybe bloated?
