My long nose butterfly is sideways! He looks to be fading quickly. I will get some parameters in a few. I need help quick!

Get some water test results and do a PWC in case there`s a problem with the water.

Ok. My nitrates are a 1.0, not good. I did a 15 gallon water change. And will do some more tonight.

Everything else was good. He is moving around a little more now. And is upright, thank the fish gods. I guess he will be under observation for the next couple days.

Butterflies can be tough, I lost one not too long ago. I had him in quarantine for 2 months dealing with his various problems. Finally got to the display was fine and dandy for a week and then died all of a sudden. Sometimes its just not meant to be.
