Hi,
I recently had two other fish along with my longest lasting fish that both had the white spot disease, however being a fish newb I didn’t know what was happening but I found it strange and separated them in little tanks, the two newest ones died and I only managed to save the last one but recently I’ve noticed it’s swimming weirdly, I know it’s eating fine and still swimming around it just looks odd to me so maybe you can help? If you could also identify the sex that would be amazing as I can’t figure it out haha

Hello and welcome!

Sorry you are having problems, but we can’t help you without more information. I’m glad you found us, and not to sound rude, but am surprised that you didn’t use Google to search for information about “white spot.” It’s a fairly common fish ailment.

Anyway....
  • Do you have a pond, and if so, what size is it?
  • Or are you keeping these fish in an aquarium? It looks like you have them isolated in small tanks.
  • How long have you had these fish, and have you recently added any new ones?
  • How long has your setup (pond or tank) been going?
  • Do you have any type of filtration, and if so, what kind?
  • Is there any aeration, added air?
  • Do you have a way to test the quality of your water?
Please get back with us so we can help you figure this out! I think that, while it’s nice to know the gender of our pets, your pics don’t give enough info, and this should be the least of your worries right now.

Explain the difference in how it’s swimming/ acting. The container you have it in could be the cause, or Illness es, stress, or other factors.
As mmathis said, we don’t have enough info to go on.

Fan tails swim differently than non fan tails, they do a wiggle swim. Is that what you are seeing? over all it looks healthy.
