I am very much a beginner to freshwater aquariums. I have 6 cardinals and 4 guppies. I have had the guppies for a week now and one appears to be rather static in the corner. This has only happened today. He looks healthy enough and the others are fine. Any ideas on what may be the issue? Thanks

Welcome to FishLore!

I see in your aquarium info that you are not aware of the nitrogen cycle (words should be link to article explaining it). I highly recommend that you read up on it and fully understand it, since it is the most important thing to understand when keeping fish.

It would appear t your fish is suffering the effects of being in an upcycled tank. I would recommend a 50% water change to get the nitrite and possibly ammonia levels down, then start working on getting the tank cycled ASAP.

After you read up on the cycle, you will probably have more questions, so feel free to ask away

Best of luck
