    Okay, I was just watching my fish and noticed one of my glow-light tetras was having some hard times swimming. It looks a little bloated and the other Glow-light tetra nearby has been swimming along side him

    But as I upload the photo I took, I noticed the fish is.. umm.. now floating upside down :( I think as I was trying to figure out what was wrong with it..it's died.

    What might have been wrong with it? Dropsy?

    Sorry for your loss. Many possibilities for cause of death. Keep an eye on the other guys and keep up on your water changes. BTW dropsy is a symptom (of many things) not a cause.

    Thanks myswtsins!
    The other Glow-light I have in the tank seems to be missing a pectoral fin. Dont know if they were nipped at one point by a betta that went missing previously.
    Though he/she looks normal and is swimming around with the neon's in the tank.
