    sunshine peacock got a beating

    So like the title implies yada yada. Hes now in quarintine. But is having a hell of a time swimming upright..... any ideas? He got a beating but it doesnt look that bad. If hes upside down is he a goner? Please help fast
    A boat can float on water and also sink...

    Most likely a goner but don't add any addition stress to the tank keep lights out oxygen on full throttle don't do any water changes for a few days if he comes around

    Well he was aggressive in his own tank. When he got in the new one he got stressed i guess. I shoulda trickled him in over a longer period of time. Stupid.

    Happens. I lost one of my male tomato vics. They were just small (under 2 inches) and I had two males with some ladies in a 35....now I have one male and several ladies in the 35.

    HARD TO JUST add 1 fish at a time as they will target it right away, sad but that is the breed

    I know i know. I hate to be the guy that says that..... i rearraged the layout and the other tricks.... in retrospect, which is always 20/20, i should have been less cocky, had alot of luck in the past, things have worked out. I hope i dont lose this fish...
