View Full Version : yoyo loach with a belly

I noticed one of my yoyo loaches has a big belly. What can cause this? is he constipated or is there something wrong with him. Ill try to get a picture up so you can see what he looks like.

Hes bloated. Dont feed him for a week to clear his guts. Also, try to not feed your fish for 24hrs once a week to keep your fish un-bloated

Thanks for the help I was hoping that it wasnt anything too serious. I took some pictures but I couldnt get anygood ones. Here is one that is blurry but you can see his stomach.

My Yo Yo over eats (snails mainly) and gets fat, but it is always down not out. I would be concerned that it's constipation or bloat.

Im running into town on friday so Ill get some peas. But in one day he all ready looks alot better. He still looks a little big but its not a bulge anymore his stomach is just bigger than the other loaches I have.

He probably found some snail eggs or snails and ate more then usual.
