Hello! I've followed this forum for a long time but never posted.

This specific CPD has been in my tank for about 3 weeks now. Recently I noticed it swimming quite weirdly. Its lost a lot of color, but I don't see any visible signs of issues (like ich, or a fungus). Now he just kind of bobs around the bottom of the tank like he's missing a swim bladder. Has anyone run into this before, or know what is going on?

Here is a video of the behavior: https://youtu.be/33aYzk_i7Uc

I checked the water parameters, everything seems fine 0 Am,0 Nitrite, 0-5 Nitrates, GH 11 KH 4-5

Tank: 10G heavily planted and CO2 injected
Filter: Fluval 206 running at about half the max flow rate, completely
Substrate: ADA Amazona
Dosing: IE at 1/2 recommended dose to keep the shrimp happy
Stock:
  • 5 Neon Tetras
  • 5 Ember Tetras
  • 4 CPDs
  • 15ish Cherry Shrimp
  • 1 Nerite Snail

Thanks for the info. I don't believe it is sick, so I'm going to keep it in the tank for a few more weeks and see if its condition improves.
