Thread: Fat Cat

  1. #1

    Default Fat Cat

    So I have 3 Cory Cats and one of them seems to have a large belly. The other two are in there little cave at the moment (the middle of the day). The one with a fat gut is just laying on the bottom in the middle of an open area of the tank. Should i be concerned or is he just being lazy because he got to all the food first...?

    I would judge by behavior. cories spend a lot of time lying around doing nothing, that is just part of their nature. If it is not behaving abnormally, and the swelling has been around for a while, it could just be that you have a gravid female.

    Please excuse my ignorance but by Gravid Female do you mean a female in "Heat" ?

    gravid means bearing eggs(hence the full belly)
