    Hi,

    My Peters Elephant Nose (Gnathonemus petersii) appears to be sick. It used to be quite happy, but today it started to get stuck in the plants, almost appearing to be dead until I scoop it out of the water. It then starts to thrash and when it gets back into the water, it just starts to swim in loops until it gets tangled again.

    Any idea what is wrong with it?

    Thanx,
    _hartz

    Welcome to the Forum, maybe you should post it under "Freshwater Discussion" and hopefully some of The freshwater gurus can help you out there....
