My foxface was eating well yesterday, swimming all around, good color.
Today it was lying under a rock, upright, but breathing fast, would not eat, and had turned very dark color.
He has been in the tank for 3 weeks.
No other fish appear sick. I changed 15 gal of water last weekend, but he's been fine since then until last night. Last night he kind of hung around the top of the water line. Tonight he was lying on the botttom of the tank.
I took him out & put in the fuge sump to see if he can recover.
There are no wounds, ich,
Dont know what else to look for
How large is the sump. For a fish that size, you are still going to want to give it some swimming room as cramping it will only stress it out more. At this point, closely observe the fish. Look for any signs of sickness. Feed some good quality food possibly soaked in garlic.
Sorry to hear that! Did you do a freshwater dip just in case it was something parasitic. I have read that some thing swill fall off when dipped for about a minute or so. I hope the rest of your fish stay healthy.
