Hi there, I've just joined this site as I would like some helpful tips for my sinking Powder Blue Gourami.
Was purchased just over a week ago, swimming, eating etc perfectly fine to begin with, although was harrassed by my Honey Red Gourami. I noticed in the last day it's been laying on the bottom of the tank. We removed (Monday night) from the others as we thought it was taking its last breathes!! A night had past and still the Gourami was alive so then I was concerned about the water temperature (as we don't have a seperate tank) it was kept in a bowl with some of the tank water. It had a frantic swim round the bowl about midday today (Tuesday). I put some food in (some had gone) still not moving much unless there was movement of the bowl, managed to poo. I decided to put it back in the tank (not sure this was the right thing to do) as the temperature thing had been bothering me. The blue colour is still bright, once in the tank had a bit of a swim but has just gone to the bottom again. Any ideas greatly welcomed. (sorry for woffling on!)
