My oscar fish is doing the same thing...Can anyone advise me on this ? Thx...Dennis
My albino fish is doing the same thing (i.e., swimming head up and tail down). I had him for about two weeks. His lips are greenish. His fins are thin. He eats, but he is not gaining weight. His sister/brother albino fish – purchase at same time – was the same size, but is now larger. Could it be Ick; b/c he has tiny little white specks on his front fins. All assistance in appreciated.
I haven't had albinos, so I can't diagnose this but you should definitely seperate the healthy fish, so that they don't catch it.
