hello and welcome to OFL. Very likely experiencing negative effects of poor water quality. More info please on what has happened so far. Tank size, filter size and brand. Are you aware of the nitrogen cycle and how it works in the aquarium? All details of your tank, fish and setup please. Meanwhile, asap, do a large water change. 50% tank volume, use a good dechlorinator/conditioner if you are on chlorinated city water.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
