Striped damsel

My little striped damsel isn't swimming at all. He's been bouncin and floating along the bottom for the past two days now.he moves but very slowly...An stays hidden... Before he swim all the time all over my tank. I don't see any discoloration. His fins might look like they've been nipped on a lil tho

Lethargy is usually an indicator that your ammonia, nitrate, or nitrite levels are out of whack. I would run all the tests you can and do a partial water change.

The other damsels could have injured him.
