I don't know what is wrong
ok here are some pics of one of my fish it is usually the dominate fish of the tank but over the last week it has started acting very lays on the bottom of the tank, swims funny, and just is not active any more. I don't know if it is a male or a female so I don't know if maybe it could be pregnant or not so maybe somebody can help me. I have tested the water and it is fine, I haven't done anything different or changed anything about the tank it is just acting weird.

How is it swimming? Is it spinning around?

How big of a tank is it? How long has it been set up? How many and what other kinds of fish are in the tank? Have you added any salt to the water? If so, how much salt?
The more info you provide, the faster I can help. There are safe medications to use, but I'd first need to know the answers to the above questions before I can suggest a specific med. Also, What is the water temp and could you post your water test results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH?

Hiya and welcome aboard, Mandy.:wave:

As for gender, it is a female.:)
Its appearance looks like it's not eating well at all.
The 2nd pic on your 2nd post shows the fish with a seemingly hollow stomach.

It appears to have clamped fins and stomach a little sunken, possible internal bacteria/parasite infection?
