I found another tank in trouble...
But wanted a specific question addressed, related to this Clarkii Clown
He swims around head-up or at an angle. He doesn't seem to be able or willing to swim head-down or level himself out. He was active when I got there, going up/down/back/forth. He camps out at the bottom of the tank a lot, same story - always head up/tail down. The owner/staff said he spent about a month laying on his side in a corner of the tank, but seems more active now.
The tank conditions are horrid (pH 7.84, temp 73.5, Nitrates off API scale immediately, haven't tested anything else) so I suspect swim bladder disease/disorder, but can anyone help pin down the problem and possible solutions?
