So yesterday I went to the petstore to pick out a pleclosomus for my large tank, I bought one, and while I was talking to the clerk, one of the gourmis (about 3 inches long) was swimming weird and I asked what happened to him.
She was super nice and said that he came that way. he was there for a while, and she asked the suprevising manager what they should do about him, and he said to adopt him out because they can't sell a fish that they know has a problem. So next thing I know, I left with two fish (I have experiance with this breed)
. Well his symptoms are bloated from head to tail, swims with his tail above his head, and has a kink in his spine. I suspect severe constipation.
I had him in my large tank, but the gourmi I have already was banging him up pretty hard,
so this morning he was moved to his own isolation tank.
He has been there at least 5 hours and no passing of waste.
I tried a pea, but he was like a little toddler who wanted nothing to do with his veggies
I will post photos of him as he improves (Hopefully, may be a genetic desise)
