Hey hello,

One of my male guppy's is doing nothing, just laying on the floor, hiding and sometimes he is falling aside... Hes not eating either...

It looks like his upper fin is kinda broke or something? Is that possible?

help me, please!!

Hey polpol,
Unfortunately from your description it could be any number of things, you need to provide more details.

For starters, how big is your tank? How long has it been set up? What is in it exactly?

Will do my best to help if you can provide more to go on.

is it bent? or broken off? If broken off, or a piece is missing, or its starting to look ratty, then I would add some melafix, by Jungle. If its just bent, I wouldnt worry.
by the way, is it a male, or female? and what are your tank stats?

In addition to what the others have asked... Please post the test results for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate, if you have them. How long you've had this fish. Please list all fish in the tank (both numbers and types) and any recent additions. Whether or not you're using salt and how much. Your water changing schedule. The tanks temperature. Is his tail disappearing or does it look thin and frail with red or white edges. Really anything that could possibly help.
