Thread: Kinda fat....

  1. #1

    Default Kinda fat....

    0 Not allowed!
    I have had this guy for a few months now, and he's always been kinda fat-bellied. He's a very good eater, and in general good health, I believe. Just wondered why the belly? Could he have a internal parasite? I've not noticed any other outward signs.

    There are two other harlequins in this tank with him. I plan on a bigger tank in the near (hopefully) future so I can remedy the small numbers of the schooling fish I have now.

    If the fish is not pooping white stringy matter, it is active, doesn't display any weird twitching or listlessness, and obviously eats very well...then I would say it is just a fatty.

    Aiden makes a good point.
