Damn fish

I'd noticed Butch had not been eating properly for a while... he seemed to get better, perked up a bit... then was lethargic again... aaaaand now he just scared the crap out of me by floating belly-up. But, he IS alive, just very unhappy looking. I righted him, and he held it for a while, but then went back to normal.

The fish book says it's a swim bladder problem (related to diet), so I should change what he's eating... live or frozen foods.

Hoo boy. I hope he makes it through... he's a REALLY cool fish and I'd feel horrendously guilty towards tesstheredpony if he died.

EDIT: He's right side up YAY!!!!
