What are the first signs of bloat? Other than lack of appetite and lethargy, please. I can't tell if my fish may be starting to bloat and I'd like to know what to watch for, because he is acting very normally (for him, I suppose. I've only had him for about 2 wks). But it is possible his belly may be getting slightly larger.
I was on another thread that was focused on fish colorization, and a viewer posted a pic of his betta, and another viewer said - "that fish has bloat", and I couldn't tell at all. There was no pine coning (and I understand that is the last stages of bloat), and I didn't think his abdomen looked particularly large to me. Am I missing something?
Thanks to all of you!
