I just was watching him and noticed this huge belly. When I say huge, I mean ENORMOUS! Like he's pregnant.
No pinecone effect, but I'm really worried. He's still quite active. Does this sound familiar to anyone out there????
Dropsy in almost always indicitive of poor water quality. test your water and see where your levels are at. If they are within normal range then it should be something else besides dropsy. Never used peas b4 but that sounds like a nice additive to promote a monster poop
like I said though, first check your water quality, nitrates, nitrites, amonia, PH and see what you come up with.
