Hi all.
This is my first post here and I was hoping someone would maybe have a suggestion.
I just got home from work and noticed my loach whom I have had over 3 years is suddenly upside down, lying on his side - no, not sleeping - rapid gill action, and very clumsy. He also seems to have a bit of mucous towards the rear, say from the dorsal back. All the other fish in the tank are fine, including 3 koolis, and a skunk loach. Any ideas ?!?!
Thanks, would hate to lose it after all this time.
