    0 Not allowed!
    Hello, can someone help me please. I have an Australian Barramundi, he's still a baby around 2.5inches and has a great appetite. i feed him bloodworms and have taught him to take pellets and oddly seems like he likes it more than the bloodworms so i usually feed pellets.
    ANYWAY to the point, i fed him in the morning with pellets. He ate quite alot. i got home and checked him out as usual and he was really bloated still from the morning. He still seems totally fine, and even looks really hungry.. hes not lying around he's swimming alot or as he normally does anyway.. but it just doesnt seem right.. i was thinking he could be constipated or something, and/or if he is can someone help. please help any ideas please..

    sorry for the long message. ><"

    Take some frozen peas and blanch them then pop them out of the shell and feed it that. If it's scales begin to stick out like a pinecone then it has dropsy which isn't fun to deal with.

    The pea will help soften any blockage or constipation.You should feed them peas once a week to keep them regular.I also add garlic juice to their food to kill any internal parasites.

    Glad to hear it worked.
    Use garlic juice and roll the pellets and flakes in it.The fish love it and it is really good for them!
