Hi all, this is my first post ever to what seems like a very, very good forum. Nice people, and active!
Anyway, this doesnt pertain to a clown (although I have 3 in the tank with em). It is one of my 3 Cinnamon Dwarf Gouramis. He has a bloated appearance, almost cartoon-like. It looks as if it swallowed a marble or something and has this exaggerated round belly. It props itself in the plants, and/or rests against the bottom all the time, whereas all the gouramis are always active and never seem to sit still. I have watched it (her?) for about a week now...the gills, eyes, and mouth all look fine, breathing doesnt seem labored. The water is chemically perfect, and 75-78F. These little guys are about a year old, and are about 1.75"-2.25" long. Only effecting this one fish, everyone else seems fine!
Please let me know what you
