    Need more info. What type of fish? Water pararimeters, Temp, How long you've had the fish. Any details will help.

    Please be sure to include all of the following.


    There are thousands of informative discussions archived here, many with photos and helpful links. Have you tried Searching the forum ? Keep in mind that the best way to get help from other forum members is to provide all the information in your first post.

    What size is your tank and what fish are currently in the tank ?

    How long has it been set up ? Is it Cycled ?

    What are your water parameters: Temperature, Ammonia (NH3/4), Nitrite (NO2), pH, GH, KH and Nitrate (NO3) ?

    How long have you had the fish and what symptoms do they have ? Have you introduced any new fish recently ? What is your maintenance schedule, and what product/s (if any) do you use to neutralize chlorine or chloramines ?

    If you have something unusual to describe, post a photo if possible.


    A bowl will be a death trap. Without a filter and heater the fish will likely die depending on what it is.
