i have a red glofish danio and he's not looking so hot. It likes to lay on the rocks in the bottom of the tank and when he is up swimming where he is supposed to be it is really jerky like he is swimming with his body instead of his fins. sometimes he will just float around the tank. I have four other danios in my tank and none of them act this way. other than the laziness it looks fine. there are no phyisical indications that it is sick.

So i guess i'm asking for some opinions. Do you think he really is sick or just lazy?
If he is sick should I take him out of the tank so he doesn't get the others sick?

When was the tank setup and how long have you had the fish?

i have had the 3 glofish almost a week and i just got 2 zebras yesterday. but the problem appeared a day or two after i got the glofish. I've been cycling my tank for about a month and a half.

do you think it's just new tank syndrome?
Sounds like it to me. What were you tank readings before you put the fish in?
