hi my 2 yr old siamese fighter neptune has suddenly began acting extremely wierd he isent eating his coulors have faded he dosent move unless its to to breath from the surface he is having trouble swimming and when he is sitting unless there is somthing he can lean on he merely rolls over onto his side and has trouble getting back up again.
he lives in a 20 liter tank that is kept to a constant temp of 24 degrees.
in his tank he has a large java fern and a medium size ceramic log.
his tank has a filter but since he got sick i have turned it off as per the instructions on the back of the bottle of melafix that i have been treating him with.
i have also been doing 25% water changes every 2 days since all this began.
this has been going on for nearly a week now a nd he appears to steadily getting worse at first i thought it might be just stress as i recently had to replace the heater in his tank (the new one was exactly the same as the old and i have been heating the tank to the same temp that i always have.
another sympton thats probably worth mentioning is that fact he is losing wieght FAST!!!!!!!.
please help my fish ive run out of things to try
