Guppy vertical swim problems
I have a female guppy that seems to have an issue. She swims fine, however when she stops swimming and goes to just hang out in a part of the tank her tail sinks and her head rises so she is hanging out vertically. I thought that it may be swim bladder disease, but she has no issues swimming and is not flipping over or struggling. She is in a 55 gallon tank with other guppies, platys, mollies, cories, tetras, and a BN pleco. It is a moderately planted tank that has been setup going on 2 years ammonia and nitrites are at 0, nitrates are between 10-20, and pH is around 7.4. The rest of the fish are doing fine and not having any problems. Anyone have any ideas on what the issue is?
does she looks like she's gasping?
Not really, ig every once in awhile but not to frequently.
try adding a little garlic to her food.just a little.see if she gets back to normal
