Shubunkin #1
I have just set up my first tank with 3 medium sized Shubunkin. They all seem perfectly happy (only been in there 3 days), but one of them has his fins closed and seems to swim slower than the rest. He is also quite lathargic most of the time. Anyone have ideas why? He's eating fine, and the tank seems to be working correctly.
