Hi . I have one my zebras not doing good . He is kinda jerking down head. Like he is chocking of something. Water tests great. All other zebras doing great. I had them for about 2 years now. Any ideas. Thanks David

I would put it in a qt tank and add some epsom salts to the tank, hold of on feeding him for a few days and see if that helps any. With zebras it's hard to pick out what is wrong with them when they act like that, is it doing anything else...like flicking off of things where its gills are or anything? Is there anything in the tank with it that could go after it and injure it? Could it be choking on something it shouldn't have eaten?

Only zebras in the tank. That all get along good. I feed flake food. But there is sand in the bottom.

I think putting him in a qt tank by himself and not feeding him for a few days might help if it is a swim bladder issue from eating some sand he shouldn't have or even eating too much flakes.
