really fat harlequin rasbora

Postby jennifer o » Wed Jan 23, 2013 3:00 pm


i have a harlequin rasbora, about 6 months old ( shes in a group of 5) she is absolutely huge compared to the others.

shes fine eating swimming about chasing the others etc, but im rather worried.

shes not pine coned and ive fed peas, but shes still massive.

shes kind of bobbing around whilst swimming

any ideas? egg bound maybe? will she just lay these?

Could be egg bound. I think you have done all you can and just need to hope she absorbs or expels them. Provide plenty of fine leaved plants in case she is waiting for privacy :wink:
