Hi everyone, I have a weather loach ( Loachy ) that I have had for about 6-8 years. I am not sure what is wrong but for the last 4 days Loachy has not been able to stay sunk on the bottom of the tank, he/she keeps floating back to the top and hides in the weeds I have floating in my aquarium. Before this happened Loachy showed no signs of illness at all, the other fish in the tank are fine and not stressed at all, I have done everything I can think of to help my old friend but now I dont know what else to do, I just found this group or I would have posted sooner. I would really appreciate any help or advice someone may have, I really do not want to loose my old friend
