    Not sure if this is the right place to post this (using ipad so some things don’t show up on the internet for some reason)

    There is no visible sign of concern (on the body), and all the other fish leave it alone. I can safely rule out swim bladder issues, as the fish can still swim OK. The concern is that it barely moves and is almost totally unresponsive to its surroundings, but did eat a tiny amount when I fed the tank just now. It alternates between sitting on the hardscape / substrate, and hovering by the surface.

    I’ve put a small amount of methelyne blue in ( to help the oxygen capacity of the fish )

    If it helps, the aquarium has received a smaller amount of food than normal in the previous week.

     

    It is kept with the following

    Orange lemon tetra x 5 ( coincidentally all males )

    Rosy tetra ( I do think that they’re ornate tetra though ) x 5

    Torpedo barb x 3

    Kribensis ( 1 pair yet to spawn and a separate female )

    Apistogramma cacatuoides ( non – breeding pair although the male sometimes displays to the female )

    Ram (M. Ramirezi) x 2 males ( added on Sunday )

    ( A bit crowded, I know, but the other tank is being completely rescaped so they’re all in here; they aren’t normally kept together )

     

    The light is switched on between 7 and 8 am and is turned off between 9 and 10 pm. ( which is why I think it’s probably just tired )

    Is this fish just exhausted, or does anyone think that there a more concerning issue?
