    Hello,
    I have an apple star that is almost always upside-down. For the first couple of months, he was super active and was always on a rock or on the sides of the aquarium; now, he's always upside-down right next to the glass. Once or twice a week he will climb the glass, stay there for about 30 minutes, and then I will find him either curled up in a ball or lying flat on his back...Is this normal? I have turned him right-side-up a few times, but he always goes straight to a wall to flip himself back over.

    Checked looks like you have to check your water it might be too acidic
