Thread: Kinda fat....

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.20G High-Tech Planted|50G High-Tech Planted|50G Goldfish Tank|56G Column Low-Tech Planted
