    Hello, I have just started my first sorority tank and after a lot of research, I am realizing I still did a million things wrong. So one thing I didn't think of was how to separate an injured girl. She is a sweetheart and was picked on by a few of the others to the point that a piece of her...

    The past 10 days he hasn’t eaten at all. He just looks at the food and doesn’t eat it. He has been having trouble swimming downwards and just floats, sometimes on his sides (scaring me).
