    My friend bought a iridescent shark
    Yesterday from lFP.
    But the fish seems like floating udside down..he is breathing
    i asked the lfp about this situation
    & he told us that the fish is fainted and will revive in 4 5 hours
    Is this true?

    probably not. Is your friend's tank cycled properly?
    Does you friend have a 12x6x4 aquarium by chance?

    Fish do not faint. Often times once they are belly up they die after a short while.

    I do not recommend the iridescent shark for beginners, they get massive (over 2ft long) and need large tanks. All the ones sold in stores a just babies likely under a year old.
