help my shark banged its head!!
hi, my iridescent shark swam it to the side of the tank really hard and keeps swimming upside down then swims normal for a while then goes back upside down again. it happened about half 12 this afternoon and doesn't seem to be any better. will my shark be ok?

The banging its head might have nothing to do with the fact that it's swimming upside down. It could just be sick. In any case, I don't think there is really anything that you can do except wait and see what happens.

Agree. Whenever I have a fish that begins to swim eratically, it always dies eventually. Sometimes it is best to remove it and euthanize it.

And welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.:-D
