Neither helped. * Not that I can see, however, I am unexperienced and not sure what to look for, I've included a picture of the fish. * My fish (Samuel) stopped swimming about 1 month ago. He will move around occasionally, but mostly stay still on the bottom of the tank. I literally have not seen him eat or poop within the last month or so, yet he is still alive (somehow). He has never eaten boiled, shelled peas, even before this problem, and I've also tried feeding him spinach, he didn't show interest in either. He sat on the bottom for so long he got a sore on his belly, so I put him in a hanging basket within the tank. The sore appears to be gone now. He will occasionally swim up to the surface, poke his nose out, and sink back down. He ignores all food. Help!!! Not sure what to do!
