    one of my tiger barb is not moving at all. When it swims, it cant seem to balance itself. So it just laids on the bottom of the tank, breathing very fast. Its color looks normal. So, whats wrong with it? What should I do??? I hasnt eat for two days now...errr.

    I am not too sure. Its body doesnt look like it has any damage. The tail fin does have small pieces missing, other than that everything else looks good. The strange thing is that it doesnt even look like a sick fish. All the color are very bright...but it just lays on its side and not move at all.

    What tankmates does it have?. Also need water test stats. Is it a new tank?. How long has it been in the tank?. The more info the better.

    Thanks for the rely all...the fish die yesterday. All the other fish are fine...all of its tank mate are community fish...tiger barb, clown louch, bala shark...since all others are OK. I guess this is just an isolate sickness of some kind.
