Why Do Fish Stay at the Bottom of the Tank?

Answer

Fish stay at the bottom of the tank because of high ammonia, nitrites and a low PH. Parasites, bullies and aggressive males may make some of your fish hide on the bottom of your goldfish aquarium. A malfunction in the swim bladder of your fish will also make it sit at the bottom of the aquarium.
