OK, Hi everyone. I had a couple quick questions about my fish and I need answers. My girlie fish has always been active. Today I noticed that she was laying on the bottom of her tank and only really getting up to eat. I don't know why this happened because she has always gotten up before me and been really active, poking around her tank, wiggling to see me, etc.
Is she just sleeping, is she sick, what?
