Question: My fish looks and is acting weird. What's wrong with it?
Answer: Unfortunately there is no easy answer to this question. From a problem with a disease, to a poor diet, toxic poisoning, harassment, an imbalance in the aquarium water, and more, there are many reasons why a fish can look and act weird. As the fish's caretaker it is up to you to research and determine the cause, which is often not an easy task. When physical signs are obvious, pinpointing and solving a problem is made simplier, but when no signs of illness or injury are present, an aquarist has to make the best possible guess they can to figure things out? For help in evaluating the possible causes of why your fish is looking and acting weird, refer to the following information.
