:( I found my apisto aggasi which normally is very busy swimming around just laying on a rock. I know something is wrong with him. I moved him to a hospital tank. Now he is doing headstands, etc not really swimming, more like floating. I dont know whats wrong with him or how to help him. Any advice would be helpful.

sounds like swim bladder issues. What is the temperature in the other tank? You might be low in oxygen .

Sounds like swim bladder issue!
Stop the feeding and let him digest what's left inside of him!
As for personal experience, hope someone else can help, as I have never save any of my fish from this problem. But i've beent old to try epsom salt bath! Anyways, hope a pro can help you out!

I found a site that said to cook a green pea, mash it up, and feed that to the fish. No ones knows why it works but apparently it does. Will try that and hope for the best.
