Help with frontosa , sitting at bottom of tank almost lifeless !!

Recommended Posts

We lost a frontosa a few weeks ago, now this one looking sad. Sitting at the bottom of tank and almost breathing rapidly ,could she have been hassled by another fish? Gill area a little red but unsure if that always like that. Water changes weekly, water tests perfect, all other fish happy. Really concerned as we never lose any fish. 8.0 ph 0 ppm of nitrate , nitrite, ammonia. Just did another water change and added rift lake salt. Temp is on 27-28 constant. Very stable tank help please , thanks

It has leant over a little this morning but seems pretty stable tho, it will swim well if another fish comes in close range, breathing a little rapidly , just dropped the heat back a bit although the thermostat has been sating of most the time lately .

Sorry to hear this Craig: good advice already by Shon & Lloyd. They should be more active with the warmer temps, old enough to jostle for hierachy. Look for ragged fins or a 'deflated' flat belly as it could have copped a hit and sustained damage to the swim bladder. It'll look like a big striped goby then lol May have to isolate to let her recover. Put some cover in for the rest to hide assuming there is an aggressor?
