    Could she be pregnant?
    What are the water parameters like?

    You need some prime ASAP. It will detox your ammonia and nitrites for 24 hrs and keep your fish safe until the next water change which should be done daily until your nitrites are 0 and stay at 0. Get a ml syringe and use that as prime is very concentrated. I use 1/2 ml for 5 gals for example. Prime is very good and will keep your fish safe until your tanks cycled. Hope this helps and good luck!!!

    This is day 3 of daily water changes. bucket one lol we use prime with every water change as is directed on the bottle and weekly for maintenance. so we're doing another 50% water change now
