  2. Ok made my siggy smaller, but I don't think I have PM capabilities yet as I can not find a PM link anywhere. Walter is doing load better, about and hour or so after posting I checked her and she was upright, listing just a little. she then ate some peas and I left her in the bucket for a few more hours before doing a 50% water change and putting her back in the tank. So far she is doing well and acting normal. She is not swollen and poop looks normal. I have not fasted lately, but I think I will, then give her some peas, just to make sure. Thanks for your help.

Tetra ColorFin Sinking Granules Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt", bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? - No Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, ect..? On Tuesday I found my Lemon Head Oranda Walter listing to her side so I did a little over a 25% water change and she seems to perk up and be ok. Last night though I went to feed and she was completely over on her side, but when I put the food in she swam around and ate like usually, but when she stopped swimming listed back over onto her left side. So I moved her to a 5 gal bucket for the night. My other Oranda has been acting normal. This morning she was still on her side, so I did a water change and added a bubble want to the bucket, and also offer her some peas, but she just spit them back out. I don't know if something is wrong or if it is just old age, Walter is 8 years old.
