Well.....you could tell me what's going on, & I could guess......OR, I could watch a video, see what's happening, & know what to advise. Seems like an easy choice to me.... B)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Never have shot a video... need to try it out. My DSLR is and older model Sony that takes awesome pics but has no video feature. Lame-o

My cheap little point and shoot will do video, but I will need to experiment a bit.

Long story short, you may or may not see a video :blink:

Well I fed bloodworms and no response. I put my hand up to the glass to see his reaction and he freaked out and started to have a weird seizure and was swimming upside down for a while. I think the head trauma was worse than I thought. I have a feeling I might have to put the fish down. :(

Oh no :(

Do you have a quarantine tank or somewhere you can isolate him? I'm guessing he's no longer swimming upside down which is good, at least. Seconding Jack's request to see a video.

Ive had this happen once in the past with a fish that got stuck in a piece of plastic 'driftwood'. After it came out it was never the same and had weird seizures and soon passed. Ive never shot or posted video, I will see what I can do. Not so sure if the fish will make it.

Man,I really hate to hear that. If no one is bothering him, I would be hesitant to move the fish, that would be a lot of stress for it. A crappy video is probably better than none.

Don't give up, if you remember my recent Dovii issue, the video I showed was the one where he looked good, he was laying upside down for a while.

Fish is swimming a bit strange with nose toward surface. I put hand up to glass and it backs up but no seizures today.
