Hi. In my 40 gallon, I notice a harlequin rasbora flash on his belly. Now, if it were his gill, then I would treat the tank with prazipro; however, since it flashed its belly a few times, I am not sure how to treat the tank. What do you think it could be? Should i treat it with just aquarium salt?

My ammonia and nitrite levels are 0.0ppm.

Occasional flashing doesn't always mean parasites. Maybe he just had an itch.

Is it an ongoing behavior or just something you saw that one time?

If it's ongoing, how are the other fish? Can you inspect them up close with a magnifying glass? How are their gills and respiration rates?
