Constipation/bloat

Post by Star on Wed Jan 11, 2012 12:27 pm

Fish need a well balanced diet to keep them healthy, and small amounts of food. One of the biggest problems can be constipation or bloat.

If your fish is constipated you will see an extended stomach (see the 2 tiger barbs below). You will notice long feses that does not break off easily trailing from your fish, if there are air bubbles in it too they are bloating, gases building up in the stomach. Starve the fish for 48 hours then feed more vegetable matter (cooked de-shelled peas are very good) to help eleviate the problem and in severe cases dose with an anbibacterial medication to reduce the bacteria build up inside the fish.
