"Hi, I'm new to the fish world and am loving it! I purchased a 26 gallon Bow Front tank in Feb 2011 as my first tank and have just finished stocking it about 1 week ago. 1 male betta 4 phantom tetra 3 longfin Danio 2 glass bloodfin tetra 3 albino cory 1 longfin bristlenose pleco As far as the community goes they all get along and there is no fin nipping to date! However, I am concerned for one of my phantom tetras. He's gone pale, lethargic and stays in one spot hidden about mid tank. He seems to be gasping as his mouth is constantly opening and closing. He flicks his fins over and over and doesn't seem interested in food at all. He was one of my first few fish so I'm wondering if his immune system may have been damaged from stress caused by adding the other fish. I'm not quite sure how to help him or what's wrong :( If anyone has any advice it would be welcome. Thanks, Linsay"
