"I just recently bought 2 calico and they have been a problem from the very beginning. They are not active like I hear in all the other stories. They don't swim much just stay on bottom of tank. I asked a couple of assistants at petsmart some questions like, Why do my fish swim sideways and upside down? They said they are bloated because I was just dropping flakes on top of water. This adds too much air which causes my fish to have gas! Weird huh. The soloution is to put them in warm water for 2 hours or so. It seems to work but every time I feed them (have to put flakes in hand and submerge hand in water then release food) they become bloated again. They are still swimming off balance and not vigourous at all. I can not keep pulling them out of water for their gas break! Funny huh but not after several days. I am just gonna wait it out and see if they adjust some how or change their food. Wish me Luck with Tinker bell and Frenchy!"
