Smurfy girl,swollen stomach

Well I just checked on her. She is still acting very crazy like. I dunno why. But I got out my flashlight and her stomach area is swollen. She has some fin rot as well. I am gonna do a full change on her tank and treat her with Jungle Labs fungus stuff I had.

Not the case what so ever unless you let it go untreated. It certainly will not "poison" other fish either.

Please do not come here spreading incorrect information.

Fin rot is very treatable. Fishyinpa, are you certain it is fungal fin rot and not bacterial? anti fungus will not treat bacterial fin rot.

The best treatment is salt baths and water changes.

As far as the swollen stomach, fast her for a few days and see if it goes down. she may just be constipated

Well I just checked on her and her stomach is like,woh very bloated. I fed her couple days ago,but I dunno why she has such problems going potty. Should i stop the jungle labs stuff? I dunno if its helping or hurting. I am gonna try an epsom salt bath. Dunno how she is gonna like it but I will try.
