Ember Tetra Skinny and Swimming Weirdly


Recommended Posts

I noticed this morning one of my ember tetras was swimming weirdly. I have a 29 gallon planted tank with some other common community fish. I noticed it was skinny and looked pale. I isolated it in a breeder box and put in a small amount of aquarium salt. It stopped swimming in the box for a second and almost go to the bottom before swimming again. What should I do and what is it. I have aquarium salt and the med trio on hand. 


0ppm Ammonia and Nitrite

15-20ppm Nitrate 

100ppm Hardness GH

100ppm Buffer KH

7.8 pH

0ppm Chlorine
