Hi everyone,

I currently have 3 male guppies in my 36-gal tank. One guppy is perfectly healthy. The silver one has stayed at the bottom of the tank since yesterday. He's still eating though. His body & tail are darkening as you can see in the pic



My other yellow guppy has been at the top of the tank for a few days. He has a bloated/swollen belly. In the past, I applied ParaGuard for about a week but it didn't help it's seemed




All other fishes in the tank are doing ok (neon tetra, harlequin rasbora, swordtail, balloon molly & ghost shrimp, stocking level at 83% according to AqAdvisor.com). I do 25% water change every week. My water parameters:
- Nitrate, Nitrite & Amonia: 0 ppm
- pH: ~8.2
- Temperature: 78 F
- I currently have ~ 3 tablespoons of aquarium salt in the tank

Can anybody tell me what's going on with the 2 guppies? Thanks!

Update: The silver guppy didn't make it through today :( The yellow one's still hanging around at the top of the tank, refused to eat cooked pea but still accepted flake foods

P.S: Thanks Susan!
