Roger Wilco (our new multicolor CT) was doing fine the first couple of days, then he became a little bloated, nothing dramatic, just like he always had a very full belly. He was swimming around and doing fine.
The last couple of days, he's been a little more reserved, hidding a lot in his cave, swimming a little less and he's still bloated.
We tried fasting him for a day, the bloat didn't go away. And he has refused to eat anything today which is not like him. We tried Pellets, flakes, frozen bloodworms... nothing works. His fins are also a little clamped, like he's keeping them close to his body.
He's in a 2 gallon, heated(78), filtered tank with lots of hidding places. All the water parameters are fine. The water is changed twice a week (50% each times but one with gravel vaccuming).
I've heard about peas for the bloat? What kind of peas can I give and how do I prepare it? How much can I give to him? What else can we do?
I don't understand, we've done everything we're supposed to and he was fine at first.... Suggestions are appreciated.
