You mentioned this happened before with another fish ... similar symptoms. How long before that fish passed?

Man, I hope he gets over this. That's a great looking fish.

The other one was a loisellei that got stuck in a Petsmart piece of decor. It was in there a day before I broke the thing apart to get him out. It passed within the week. Sadly this het is exhibiting similar behavior. But the fact its not having seizures gives me some hope.

Its the little het. All other fish are fine. The het had a head injury with a little chunk of flesh missing on one side and some scrapes on the other.

Not bullied but likely startled by a bichir or the pleco rubbing against him. Not thinking swim bladder, it seems if it wants to it swims just fine.
