Another Fish Question.............

We have 4 flame tetras and they have all really grown since we got them. One of them, however is really big, could it be pregnant or is there something seriously wrong with it? I have tried to phone to fish shop but they are closed.

Anyone out there help?

Bella are the scales sticking out like a pine cone and is it gasping for air at the top of the tank? Tetras are generally not live bearers so I wouldn't think it would be pregnant. But then again, I'm not an expert and could be wrong. As long as it's not gasping at the top of the tank, if it is sick, it has more chance of being treated successfully. Best bet to phone the shop tomorrow.

Tiggs, the scales are sticking out like pine-cones but it isn't gasping for air....well, not at the moment anyway.

Sounds like it could be Dropsy then Bella. :sad: Unfortunately there is not a lot you can do about it except hope it doesn't spread to the rest of your fish. We have two species of fish in our tank that are dying from it one by one. We have tried medicating but it doesn't seem to do a whole lot. :sad:
