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.
