    Hi guys,

    I bought a grown male bristlenose last weekend for my 300 litre tank, however this morning I found him upside down but still breathing? I put the net in and he turned himself over but he isn't really moving? Any ideas?

    Have you tested your water? Are you using any chemicals other than dechlorinator?

    looks allright : didn't it fell asleep in his hiding place? They sometimes do and fell on their back.

    My albino female will do that from time to time.
