    How long has your tank been running? is it cycled? What exactly are your parameter readings and how long has the guppy been in the tank?

    75gl tank its been running for 1yr. perameters r .5 or less on amonia,nitrite ,.10 on nitrate, 76degrees . I had to treat tank with mayracin two for a infection in alot of my fish.thats why readings are alittle high.My hospital tank crashed a week before for treating 4 other guppies that died guessing that it was a gram + infection.So i only had main tank.Everything was clearing up until my pleco knocked off syphen tube to filter &got sucked in and injured.With him in filter there was no circulation in tank for several hours,only in filter .thats why pleco didn't die.there's 4clown loach ,3 red ghost tetras,6haliqiun rosborias,2 kollie loach 2plecos,about 20 male guppies all born around easter.Thank you for your reply

    If it is heads up in the middle of the tank, it could be gasping for air meaning that you need more oxygen the tank. Try adding a bubbler and increasing surface disruption.
