    I thought for sure he was dead, he was belly up in a plant...when I moved the plant I saw him struggle...I got him free but he was having a hard time staying right side up... I got him in the net thinking he was down for too long and brought him up closer to the top so that he could get some oxygen.... he is now in the bowl with the fresh air flowing into the bowl swimming to the top of the bowl for breaths...seems to be getting a little stronger I'm not sure if he is sick or just got trapped.... is there anything else I should be doing or just leave him in the bowl and see how he does overnight I have no idea how long he was stuck...I have already removed some plants and spaced them out more...I feel horrible!!

    Is the bowl heated? Also, if it is not filtered you need to be doing lots of water changes. As for the plant, was it plastic or live. If it's live what kind of plant is it? Just wondering because if the plant is plastic he's more likely to be stuck in there.

    It was plastic plant and it has been removed....bowl is not heated I literally just put them in there and he's in there with water from the tank that he came out of... I just wanted to get them somewhere where I could observe him and he could reach the top faster if you needed to....
