Giant Danio Swimming upside down.

the228guy

I posted a little while ago my water parameters are Ammonia 0ppm Nitrite 0ppm Nitrate 5-10 ppm. I moved him to a 10 gallon tank by himself and he's still upside down. His gills are working hard and he swims every once in a while but he's not looking too good please help.

How long have you had it? It sounds like swim bladder issues, but it also might be a "defective" or weak fish from the store if it's new.

Yeah I got him about a week ago he swam at the top corner of the tank while the others where schooling in the middle of the tank he also didn't eat the entire time I had him while all the others ate their food quickly. Unfortunately he passed after unsuccessfully trying to move him to an established qt tank.

Yeah that sounds like just one of those things that can happen to new fish. Good to hear the others are acting normal
