HELP.. wat do I do?
Came home today and found my chocolate oranda sat on the bottom of the tank.. Took a closer look and saw that its sat with its mouth wide open, it looks like theres a stone or something stuck but cant relly see, I dont know what to do.. will it come out on its own if its something stuck or could it be something else?! help :( xx

Update... yes is a small pebble :roll: , its swimming around now and I can see it... wil it be able to get it out by itself ? :cry:

If it was capable of getting it out on its own I imagine it would have already. Might be time to net the fish and grab a pair of tweezers.

ooo its right in though and quite a small fish, wont it hurt it? :(

That is a possibility however leaving it in will surely cause it harm.

Did the tweezer thing, wow dont know how it managed to get it in there in the first place!? finally got a grip on it n sort of half pulled it out but then fishy starting getting a bit stressed and i lost grip, let him swim out though and the little help must of done the trick as cant see any stone, It cant of gone further down could it though! :shock: neway seems a bit more perky and mouth is moving better though a bit stretched lol hopefully it worked thanks! xx
