Hey all! Just got here and need help. So I have a red tiger named Mutha Fucka Jones who I am very attached to. Today I noticed he was hanging out in the bottom of the tank for hours in kind of a nose dive stance. And now he is just floating around at the surface on his back???? I can flip him right side up and he will swim around a little and then just go right back to belly up. Another thing I noticed is that one of his eyes looks like the lens has detached or collapsed or something, really worried about the little dude :(

Hi there, welcome to our community.

Sounds as if the fish may have some kind of swim bladder disorder. How big is the aquarium?

Have you tested the water for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH

Also, is the fish still eating?

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
