Asura's healed up nicely from the body slime infection he had last week, but now he'd been getting bloated despite the fact that everything is normal as it was before he got sick. I cleaned out his tank and everything, what could cause it? I don't want to assume anything, but it worries me since he's bloating so soon after a previous problem
