Sorry for the triple post, but would you say the rasboras in there are lamb-chops?

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I think I was on another thread with you about that, and they would be lambchops, as they are smaller and not as "tall" as regular harlequins.

I thought he was SEVERELY bloated, like...infection/over eating/exploding big which I've seen in neglectful cases (not that you are :) but you know how pet stores are!!!) he just looks like a piggy

I'm not sure about the pea method, as I don't do it... But if you got the bloated boy into the breeder's net (rearrange decor and re-add the bully one, now it's not his territory) maybe you could try that if fasting doesn't work?

I had a good idea - instead of putting him in the breeder net where he is separated from his buddies, I'll just cup him when the others are being fed, so he doesn't eat and is still with his buds. :)

No problem hopefully he gets better! I'm getting some breeder guppies from a local around here, hopefully they aren't suicidal like the store guppies
