What is wrong with this fish?

Over the past few days or weeks, one of my white cloud minnows has been acting very lethargic and wonít eat much and is just not swimming either, just getting carried by the current of the filter. I used to have a small hospital tank but now Iíve drained it so Iím unsure what to do. Also I have a huge animal problem in this tank, there are Malaysian trumpet snails I think and another type. What can I do to try and combat this too?

That one looks bent, which might indicate an intestinal infection of some type. Likely not curable. As for your snail invasion, Manuel elimination, homemade vegetable baited traps or snail eating Loaches.

You could add an assassin snail and let it obliterate all of them.

It could have worms. I think API General cure is suppose to help with worms/internal parasites.

I'm sorry to hear it. I've started to just quarantine and treat everything I buy. I just assume everything is sick with worms, ick, or something.

I didn't have a Q-tank for a long time, then I found real quick how expensive it gets to dose my show tank.
