  1. Default Bloated Harley Rasbora? Help please.

    One of my Harleys has been staying in the top left corner of my community aquarium for the past 3 days. I've seen my Harleys stomachs get really big from eggs but they never have stayed in one place especially for 3 days. It just treads water and does not move. Any ideas?

    Keep an eye on the scales and eyes. If the scales start sticking out and/or the eyes start bulging, get that Harley out of the tank.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    He is stressed and will die. Once the organs start shutting down the body starts to bloat. Put him on ice (in ice water), don't let him get so bloated his eyes and fins pop out.

    She doesn't look overly huge to me. Perhaps she is listless because she is filling up with eggs but just not ready to drop them yet.

    I agree with Lady Hobbs, I don't really see anything wrong with her either. What are you feeding them and how often, maybe the fish need a fasting day once in a while.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    If you do come to euthanise the fish, I prefer clove oil and vodka in the container - it "appears" to be less stressful/painful to the fish and it's how I euthanise mine. Or a brick on the pavement outside if you can bear it.

    He must have given up last night. I found him on the floor. Poor guy.
