Guupies laying on the floor???

If any of you remember my post about the nitrate peak in our 15 gal aquarium and i said my guppies might follow well i was wrong they are still alive and kicking. Now the problem is one of them tends to sometimes lay on the floor it looks like he dead but he is not is this normal for them to lay on the floor or is this from the nitrate peak??

Check ammonia. It is not normal for a tetra to lie anywhere, so I'd watch him.

Sorry about that- my apologies to your guppy! No, guppies do not do this either. They never rest, constantly swimming and searching around. The only exception is when a female is dropping fry she will hide and stay in one place.
