    hey all......i'm new...so might be askn newbie questions...
    well i have a poblem and need some1 to help.... i have a dam with some murray cod....the other day i went fishing for some and caught a small 15cm cod that i decided to keep in my fish tank cos i think they look mad... i stored the cod in a bucket with some water from the dam...when i got home i transfered the cod into my tank which haves 4 silver perchs and an australian catfish....probably 30 mins after, my cod started to belly-up but still breathing...i got scared and took it out and placed it in my bath tub with cold tap water......and suprisingly after 10 mins it was swimming perfectly.... the next day i tried to put it back into the tank and same thing happened (belly-up) so now its back in the bath tub swimming fine again..........

    question is...... whats going on?????? and what do i do to put it into my fish tank alive????

    Yup, hes in australia. Quick IP trace.

    Im sorry, Cod, we cannot help you here, as that would be violating the law.
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.
