"My son and I just bought a striped and a spotted Raphael catfish...but the striped one is curled up like a ball?!? I have seen him swim a little...he does lay upside down but this being curled up and his fins are not fanned out...they are closed :( I am really worried about both of these fish! People say they are very hardy but they both look VERY sick or sad or something! Our tiger barbs look great! Our water is a little cloudy...but just did a 40% water change. Can they be upset/stressed because they don't have a cave or something to hide in? Will this kill them? They have been like this for about 2 days. Any help will certainly be appreciated!!!"
