Exclamation Please Help! Sick Or Stressed Fish!

This morning I saw that one of my fish was dead and got sucked to the filter. And last week one of my ADFs died. So today I did a water change and I vacuumed the gravel. Ever since this morning I noticed that one of my Zebra Danios(Glofish) had been staying in a corner and swimming in the same area. He also hasn't been eating, I've tried to drop some food on it, but it won't eat. It's 8:13 pm and my LPS is about to close. Is my fish stressed or sick? Can somebody please help me?

I don't want him(or her) to die! Need help quick!

Sorry the Photos! weren't the right file type. So no photos...

Get you water tested, you're probably experiencing some sort of spike. But in order for anyone to help you we'll need more info. Tank size, equipment, how long it's been set up, normal water change routine, species, etc.

(Eclipse System 6)6 Gallon tank, I've had it for about 3 months, I have only changed the water once(yesterday) because the water level usually drops from evaporation and I just fill it up when the water is lower than usual, I change the filter every 3 weeks, he is moving from certain places like corners or near a plant, and I did a gravel vacuum yesterday and changed the whole look of the tank.

Your tank sounds really over-stocked, honestly. How many fish/frogs are in there? Get your water tested asap if you want to save the fish.

Yeah, that's a lot for a 6-gallon, especially since danios are really supposed to be in 20+ gallons .

Anyways, like I've said a couple times, you need to get your water tested.

You should consider a larger tank.
