Dwarf gourami pale and lethargic
I was away from home for 5 days, and had someone care for my fish while I was away. I came back, and my dwarf gourami was pale and lethargic. He used to swim around a lot, but now he just stays in the top corner of the tank. He also keeps his pelvic fins up against his body, even when he is standing still.
I just tested the water and none of the conditions have changed.
Nitrate: 10 ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Hardness: 75 ppm
Alkalinity: 200 ppm
pH: 8.0 (I know this is a little high but I was told that as long as he's tank-bred it should be fine, and it hasn't been a problem before)
