The pH in his tank is good.
He lives in a 5.5 gallon tank with a filter.
I give hime a partial water change once a week.
He recently developed some bloating. After a night it seemed to go down and I stopped worrying. A day later it was worse. I contacted a local fish specielty store and was told to purchase a pea and feed him some cooked portions, which I did.
That made the bloating even worse.
that has gone down some in the last 2 days.
He has also been fasted for the last 3days.
He is still bloated.
The chin discoloration started small on the base of his chin and has spread across the whole lower portion of his chin over 5 days.
Also, he is active and perky.
His other fins are lovely and red as always.
They show no signs of pinecone effect or other discolorations.
