Hi I have a longear sunfish (Bluegill Cousin) hence my name lol. This is my first post here too. Anyways... my ammonia got too high. So the first symptoms were not eating. I didn't have time to change the water so I did it the next day. What I saw? My fish swimming upside down and couldn't right himself. DId a 80% water change... and cleaned all the filters... and added new carbon. He mellowed out and stayed upright the rest of the night. The next day... he's upside down again. Another 80% water change. Today he's upside down and when I looked at him he "played dead" no breathing for about a minute then started breathing again and can't right himself. When he fell to his other side I noticed where the flesh is along the spine... it's a bright white (normally orange). HELP!!!
