    Default Dalmatian molly sleeping

    So I bought a few Dalmatian Molly's from l big box store smh one male and 2 females. The male always lays on his side like he's sleeping this way if I tap the glass he gets up if I put food in the tank and everyone comes out he gets up. It's been a few weeks now. Has anyone ever seen this behavior in their aquarium.

    Not sure of the parameters water is not still no co2 is being dosed at this time and their are a few other fish in the tank but this one has been doing this since day one. At first I thought maybe from the car ride his swim bladder was out of wack but it should've adjusted by now

    No he's not I didn't think it would affect the other fish
