Wyomingite Wyomingite I knows the reason she is hiding and no swimming. She got some swimming issues and can no swim on her own. Maybe its swim bladder issues? Can I save her? I mean she kinda swim on her own, but not for very often and will swim shakily and when she no swims she will b e n d her back. I need. To. Save. Her. Maybe I should put her in w i t h Peanut and see if she will recover?image.jpg

Maybe. Try feeding a plant-based flake food or some mashed peas, that might help. It could be stress-related, although swim bladder issues caused solely by stress are pretty rare. If it is it may correct in a couple of days. It could also be an infection caused by the stress of moving, which might require meds. This last is what I figure is most likely.

Hard to tell for sure what's going on, especially on such a small fish. I'd try the food for a few days and if it hasn't corrected you'll have to decide if you want to spend the time and resources to try to save it.

Thank you for your reply! I could move it to my fighters tank, he should accept her as in his tank I use artemiss for fungus and bacteria infections so i could do that as well. I hope it is stress realated and nothing more than that. I move her to my breeding box and i may try mashed peas tomorow to see if it helps.
