"I have a 20 gallon fish tank with a rosy barb, a mollie and two glass fish. Around a year ago I noticed the mollie on it's nose every so often (not on the bottom just suspended in the water nose down). After a few seconds it would straighten up and appear fine. Over a number of months it progressed to being on its side for a short period and then it would straighten up and seem fine again. For the last 6 months at least it has been laying on its side on the bottom of the tank. It still moves around and I assume eats since it's still alive. There aren't any outward signs of illness or injury. Any idea what would cause this and whether it can be treated after this long? All of the fish are around 5 years old."
