Sick Black Phantom Tetra
One of my Black Phantom Tetra's is behaving oddly and im not sure whats wrong with it. It is pale and its body shape is a bit different to my others, and it seems to be always panting. I have filmed a quick video so you can see:
I have tried dosing myxazin as I thought it might be a bacterial infection but it doesnt seem to be helping.

Has it alway been pale and different in body shape, or have these physical characteristics only developed in recent times?

Looks a little bloated maybe? Doesn't look pale to me though...I know males and females are differently colored. Females (I think) have a red tint, males don't. Looks like a male, but he does seem to be in some distress. Could be internal parasites or constipation.
BTW beautiful tank!!20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!
