Thread: Fish Diet???

  1. Default Fish Diet???


    0 Not allowed!
    Is it possibly to put fish on a diet? I already only feed my fish once per day and I fast them during the weekends, but my Glo Fish is just...fat.

    All my other fish in the tank seem to be perfectly healthy, not overweight or underweight. It's just the one Glo Fishh who looks like a stuffed sausage.

    Feel free to move this if it's in the wrong thread.

    Never heard of a fish getting fat - of course, anything could be possible - but sounds like the fish is constipated. If this is the case, you can check on treatment in the illness section - I believe Epsom salt is a good treatment just don't know dose or length of time.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    are you sure it's not a normal female danio? Females get pretty wide-bodied compared to the males.
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras
    75 gallon community tank: black skirt tetras, danios, bronze corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp

    +1 to what brhino said.

    Also if it is a female it could be carrying eggs? This can add to the 'fat' look
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    If it's constipated, then usually peas are recommended to empty a fish out - but I tend to agree with Brhino - my female danios have wide bottoms - they are also little piggies when it comes to food and I don't feed mine everyday either.

    It wasn't fat until after I got back from visiting friends and boyfriend. I've fed peas and it doesn't seem to have made a difference. It's just the one lone Glo Fish, the other one died.
