Bloated Stomach help?!

I hope I'm just being paranoid and this is nothing but anyway so Chevy just ate for the first time and I noticed he was bloated under the stomach while eating.



Is the beginning of dropsy or something else? I really hope it's not dropsy. :-/

I would fast him for a couple days until the swelling goes down. Are his scaled pine-coning?

I will and so far no. Does the boating come before the pine-coning or at the same time? :-s

I'm not sure, you can google it though. When one of my fish had dropsy, I caught it too late. When they reach the pine-coning stage, it's usually fatal. He could also have SBD. I'd research that also. Does he have trouble swimming? Can he go to the bottom of the tank or does he stay on the top?

He can swim just fine so I don't think its SBD, I'm hoping/thinking he might just be constipated if he ate some of the food that fell to the bottom of the tank from the other times that I've attempted to feed him and he didn't eat at the time.

Yeah, just keep an eye on him and fast him for a couple days. If it doesn't go down than it could be something.

Ugh I hope that's all it is, I try not to get attached too quickly with fish since I rarely have luck with them but I really am growing close to Chev. :(

It's very hard not to get attached! I bought a new fish Tuesday night and I think he has SBD. It doesn't look like he's going to last much longer. :(

Thanks! Hopefully the little guy pulls through. He didn't look too good when I got him, but I figured he'd brighten up in a bigger tank. :/
