    Bottom of the pond and 'clamped'(?) - Help/advice, please...!

    Hi all,

    This poor chap is on the bottom of the pond, looking slightly bent, not eating and generally not interested in anything or the other fish. I think he's been like this for a while to be honest, but I've only just managed to get my water clear enough to see him properly.

    Any thoughts as to what the problem is and more importantly, how I can help him, please?

    Thank you,

    Rich

    Sadly not a very clear photo, but I can see what you mean by the looking slightly bent......you haven't had any electric seep
    into the pond somehow have you ? if they get a shock it can leave them with a bend , and it doesn't have to be all of the fish that are
    effected either . People are going to ask for details of your pond......filter set up......water test results....how many gallons...and
    how many fish you have in it. If you could you get a clearer photo up that would help. I'm sure someone will be along to help
    further before to long...………
