    Hey all,

    My gold skirt tetra this morning has been swimming upsidedown/sideways and has torn fins.

    What are the water parameters? Heated? Filtered?

    Do you have pictures? You long have you had them?

    Ammonia - 0
    Nitrite - 0
    Nitrate - 15
    Its heated and filtered.
    Ive had them for about 2-3 months.

    First of all I'd consider euthanizing it.
    What other fish are in the tank?

    He still is swimming tho. This is a quarantine but fish in the actual tank were chasing him so i had to put him in the box.

    I know he's still swimming, but in my opinion a fish that swims upside down or sideways rarely survives anyway. I'd just consider it, since the fish probably is in pain and might not recover anyway. I'm sorry to say.
