Exclamation Green tiger barb

So far, everything is going well in the tank. but, the smallest fish in the tank, my green tiger barb, is just hovering in one spot and not moving. on occasion, she will move to a different hiding spot, and still hover there. This happened with one of my other tiger barbs that i had that died last Friday. (I was very upset) Is she sick, or is she sick enough to die because i don't know how to tell. please respond soon! -NoaDon12-

Tiger barbs are schooling fish too. How many are in the tank?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
