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.
Here are pictures:
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.
