I am getting concerned about her again.. She spends a lot of time at the bottom of the tank just sitting and wiggling every now and then. She recognises me and comes up to the top assuming I will feed them, but when she sees I won't, she goes back to the same spot and just sits there again..

She swims fine, when she swims, and she eats when I feed them but this behaviour is just so odd.
I am about to upgrade them to a bigger tank (they are currently in a 15l tank which is way too small) and its a matter of days until I get them some friends, but I am worried about 'stressing her' putting her in a bigger tank and introducing more fish, if she is unwell.. I tested the water, all good parameters.. and the boy is still perfectly fine..

Could it be some infection, should I get some medication for her, or anything to help her recover a bit before I move her? She has been fin nipped as well :(
