Figure 8 Can't Swim
Help! I accidentally left my puffer's light off until mid afternoon and when I turned it on, he was hiding under the bubble wand. I figured he was just groggy but when he came out 10 ish minutes later when I came to check on him, he could barely swim. He's aware of when I come by his tank and comes happily out, but it looks like he can't control where he swims. His fins aren't clamped and he seems to be using them like normal... it's just that he's not going where he wants to go. He's been going around the current so I pushed him out of it and he's been hiding back in the plants. I have no idea what's wrong with him. I tested the water, everything came back perfectly fine (using API Freshwater Kit, although he's in 1.007 salinity). He's been on a mostly bloodworm diet with the occasional ghost shrimps. He just had 2 in the past few days but I didn't notice anything wrong with him until I turned the lights on today... Please help!
