That is a very bloated male. Any raised scales? I would be worried

She says no. Should I tell her to treat him for dropsy? Or SB?

Might be early signs of dropsy. Might be constipation but then the fish would be far more lethargic. Constipation based SBD involves "funny" sideways swimming. Conclusion: we need more info. There's a questionnaire you can fill out :)

She says that he's swimming OK and doing well. Although she plans to keep him in a severely under planted 1 gallon with no heater or filter and weekly water changes so I doubt he'll last long.... :(
