Update on dario

The dario I rescued from Walmart about 3 months ago is finally filling out. If you remember he was so very thin. The striatas give him a hard time but he is out and about most of the time now. It is really weird though, he seems to be filling out from head to tail. From his head to about 2/3 down his body seems to be full-bodied and the rest of his body still seems to be thin. At first I thought he was bloated but he is eating and acting fine. Does this seem to be the way half-starved loaches fatten up? It sure has taken a long time. I would love to get him some buddies but haven't seen another one in all this time.
