So yep, ANOTHER sick fish :'( I just saw Captain America on his side in the corner of the tank with some popeye on his right eye. I had turned off the filter because it seemed like it was pushing him to the corner. I noticed it when I tapped the tank and he struggled in a weird pose to get air (like a wiggle) just like Rainbow. I'll fill out the form.

How old is your fish (approximately)? I got him in November, but I'm not sure how old he is.
Please answer as soon as you read this.
Ps: Rainbow is still sick but looks like he's improving VERY VERY slowly. Weird thing is that he never loses his pretty color!
Ps 2: I only have a 1/2 gallon tank thats empty but isn't that too complicated to measure and everything to put the right amount of medicine?
Thanks. I hope I can heal them!
