  1. Default Sick Chinese Algae Eater

    First question: Is he a 'catfish' or a 'pleco'? I feel so stupid to ask! LOL Secondly: he is not acting right. Just sitting around. Let me pick him up to put in q. tank. Is somewhat swollen on his sides. Breathing heavily. What kind of sicknesses do algae eaters get? And what kind of medications are safe to use? Thanks for any help. Linda

    Is this a new tank? are any other fish picking on him? how big is the tank?
    The things that come to mind is that it might be dropsy or something like that.
