Hello! i have what was a completely healthy red forrest jewel yesterday that is now swimming upside down, i have isolated him but am unsure what to do next! he has some fin damage to his side fins but otherwise seems in great health, colours are still bright and was eating last night.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Hellen

Sounds like a swim bladder problem, maybe caused by aggression. I would isolate and keep it in a floating cage or fry saver so that it doesn't exhaust it self trying to get the right way up. Not much you can do treating wise if it's a swim bladder problem, sometimes i treat for constipation as well when a fish has a swim bladder problem.

Good luck

Ciao
