| || | Dwarf Blue Gourami sleeping on his side
We got a coral blue dwarf gourami. We had him about 6 months. He was in our 40 gallon tank with other dwarf gourami and we moved him to our isolation 8 gallon tank because he wasn't eating because of the other fish taking all the food. And he was hiding all the time. For about a week he was fine, but we notice he sleeps on his side. Now he has no energy, even though he is eating (blood worms) and he swims only a little. He spends most of his time on his side at about 45 degrees angle. He is a very tame fish, but he is too tame now as we can pick him up in our hands, and swim away when we let go. in the Isolation tank we got 2 Phantoms tetras, a clown loach and a sucker catfish.
We gave the tank a 60% water change and put in water conditioner, stress coat and stability. the tank has fafe plants and a filter big enought for a 16 gallon tank and we also have a air stine.
Do anyone know what we can do?
PLEASE HELP if you can.
