I have a 10-gallon aquarium in my office. It’s nothing fancy. I have a few tetras, platys and a snail. The bottom has the usual aquarium gravel and a bunch of artificial plants. I keep the filters clean.
Last Friday I noticed that one of the platys looked like it was dying. It was swimming crooked and just didn’t look right. So I figured that by the time I came back to work on Monday it would be dead. Yesterday when I came in, I looked in the tank and sure enough, it was stuck in amongst one of the “plants”. I went to get the net to scoop it out and when I returned I saw that it wasn’t dead. It was now making an attempt to swim, but its body was curved and it couldn’t do much more than wiggle around. Very stressful to watch and I’m guessing not much fun for the fish either. So I watched it throughout the day and when I left for home it was still alive. This morning I thought the poor thing would be dead for sure. Nope! It’s swimming around like normal today! Any aquarium experts out there that might know what happened?
