Hi, I'm new here. I have a male betta who is looking worse for wear. I have just noticed this bulge appearing on his abdomen on Memorial Day. It is discolored and is getting bigger. He is still swiming around and acting normal. I have treated him with the following:
- Splendid Betta Water Conditioner
- Betta Fix
- QuICK Cure
My profile picture is a picture of him BEFORE memorial day. I have attached a picture of him now. I don't think he has dropsy (he's still energetic, scales are not sticking out, etc) and I know he isn't constipated. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Please excuse the low quality pictures (he's a bit camera shy) Thank you!
Added: His bulge also appears to be translucent. Perhaps filled with fluid?
