last night i saw one of my Zebra Danios flopping around on the bottom of the tank on the gravel. he was falling on his side, and spazzing out. so i filled up a 1 gallon tupperware container that i use for water changes sometimes, and put him in there. after about 15 minutes of watching him, he seemed totally fine, so i put him back in the main tank. he sank to the bottom and started flopping around again, so i put him back in the tupperware container. when i first saw him flopping around, i thought i could see 3 white-ish spots on his back. i left him in the tupperware container until now, while i'm on my lunch break, and he's still alive ans swimming around like there's no problem. i'll be home for good in another 3 hours, then i'll try acclimating him back to the main tank and see what happens.
i still don't really see any white spots on the fish, especially not on their fins. a few have spots on their back if the light hits it at the right angle. on thursday i didn't hardly see the platies flicking against plant leaves at all, but then yesterday they were doing it alot again. so i don't know what's going on. and still no fish have died or have white spots on their fins. i'm thinking of doing a water change tonight. if anything, maybe it will help dillute the water if there's something in the water that's bothering them. last night i tested ph (7.4), both nitrite and nitrate were at 0, and ammonia was a hair over 0. yellow with a slight greenish tint.
