Please look at this video of tiger barb acting strangely
I just noticed this about 10 mins. ago. You can see one of my little monsters (green tiger barb) acting and swimming strangely. He seems to be having a hard time staying upright (best way I can describe it). He was fine when I got home a few hours ago.
I've studied him pretty closely and see no other signs of distress. Weekly water change done yesteray of about 20%. Ammonia, Nitrite at zero. Nitrates were at 10 before water change.
All other fish acting just fine. What should I do?? The biggest hospital tank that I could set up would be 1-1/2 gallons for a day or two. I do have an empty 5 gallon on hand but have to find everything that goes with it.
is the barb still ok?? looked at the video still don't know whats wrong.sorry
I am a real newbie to fish but I did used to have goldfish in my classroom and I had one that did that. When I talked to some fish people they said it was a swim bladder issue. Basically the fish got air in it's swim bladder. I was told to feed the fish frozen peas, thawed and with the skin off of the outside. That solved the problem.
In this case however, I suggest you wait to hear from people here that know a lot more about fish then I do. I am sure Tiger Barbs and Goldfish are very different.
I can't wait to hear the answer though as I currently have Tiger Barbs. Good luck with your fish. I hope you can get some answers quickly. Poor little guy looks sort of sad. :(
doesn't peas give you gas??? did the gold fish pass wing and get the air out of it's swim bladder?
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. By the next morning, he/she was fine and perfectly normal. Haven't seen the behavior since.
Very strange. Thanks to both of you.
