Ranchu Issue - staying at the bottom


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Yesterday I noticied my ranchu was staying at the bottom of the tank. 

Visually, I see nothing wrong in tems of disease. The other ranchus are doing well and active. 

He still moves around but mostly stays at the bottom like in the video. I dosed general cure into the tank after a 25% water change yesterday. 

pH - 7.6
Nitrates - 5ppm
Nitrites - 0
Ammonia - 0
Temperature - 24 celsius / 75F

I'm thinking it's an internal issue? he's able to swim up towards the surface just fine, and I don't see any like tilting or sideways swimming from him.

Any advice?

I've uploaded a video of him to youtube cause I can't attach it with the post:
