What is wrong with this fish
Just noticed a few of my zebra danios acting weird last night
1 was staying in top corner of tank, not looking too healthy, belly a little sunken
1 looked like this
(sorry for the bad pics, he wouldn't stay still)
But looks like its insides are coming out... swimming and acting fine
A few others looked like this was about to happen to them.
Water params were (0,0,0) <-and yes the tank is cycled, recently the german blues laid eggs, but these guys haven't gone close enough to them to bother them, and a second dose of prazi pro was administered sunday with a water change (after first dose was 5 days before)
Anyone ever see this. I also cannot find the one that had been in the top corner, the dwarf gourami chased him and he disappeared in the plants, either he is swimming normal with the rest or is hiding somewhere

that looks like a prolapsed rectum to me but I could be wrong.

It's hard to tell from the pictures if it's a parasite or a prolapse. Before you start medicating be sure which it is.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
