I know its a bit silly getting all upset about something so small, so I wanted to find out if I was the only one.
So I've had a pet catfish for a couple of months now, and all hes ever done is lay at the back of the tank. I personally have never seen a fish lay down on the bottom of a tank before( and yes, he's alive because he swims up to get his food). So I havent been able to get the new tank filter until this weekend and when i checked on him he wan't looking too good.
He is laying at a really wierd angle and isn't acting the same, like he is dying. I really don't want this to happen because to me, even little fish are members of my family. I really don't know how I will take it if I wake up next morning and find out that he passed away while I was sleeping. I know that I can always get another fish, but thats not really the point. Fish die all the time, even if you take care of them. But it doesn't make it any easier to lose one. To me its like losing a cat or a dog. They had personalities and they were completely unique.
I hope that he makes it throught the weekend.
