Help!! Fish seizure??

kaleen

My Electric Blue Acara has been acting VERY weird for the past couple days. He’s been darting around the tank, diving into the gravel then floating at the top either on his side or upside down. He then seems to seize up and is unable to move for a minute, then he gets himself back together and seems freaked out. He’s been doing this often for the past couple days, won’t eat, and hides all the time. He’s currently in a quarantine tank and I’ve dosed General Cure and Erythromycin. He’s still darting and is having an episode right now. Currently laying on his side at the bottom seized up, but still alive and trying to move.

I have no clue what’s going on. I’m worried because I really like this fish but I don’t think he has much time left. It’s disturbing to watch him like this and I don’t want him to suffer anymore if there’s no curing him. Help!

Unfortunately right after I posted this he passed away. Very sad considering this fish was super cool and I was looking forward to watching him grow. I’ll get another soon after my main tank is stocked up.

Sorry to hear you went through that! Must have been horrible to watch.
Good luck with your next one!
