    so i get home and my brand new flame is upside down. and i was like oh that sucks then he started doing these little spurts of energy flinging himself around the tank i panicked and now he is in a quarantine jug. (i dont have another tank). is he in pain? will he die? helloooooopppppppp

    the tank was perfect for him. but he was under alot of stress... did i do something wrong??

    he could only swim upside down and would lay at the bottom
