I Just bought 2 adorable 1-inch oscars from the pet store and put them in my 30 gallon tank ( You don't have to tell me I need a bigger tank I am gonnna eventually upgrade) with no other fish, the larger one yesterday started to stay at the bottom of the tank, but now he just lays at the bottom and once in a while he'll start freaking out and literally swimming in circles. My other oscar is doing fine though and is eating. But I'm truly scared for the other.

Is your tank cycled with seeded filtration? Do you have water parameter readings? How did you acclimate the fish from store to your tank?

Dont spend your time trying to reply to this now, I lost him/her at about 2:00. I don't know what it was but I don't think it had anything to do with the water because the other one is doing just fine

The surviving fish may be more tolerant to bad water. You should always know your water parameters as the majority of fish illnesses and deaths are directly related to water problems. If you cant measure at the moment, be safe and do a water change.
