gold fish with an extremely swollen belly swimming upside down
« on: October 22, 2009, 10:51:28 AM »

One of my gold fish has an extremely swollen belly, swims upside down and stays at the bottom of the tank. I was told she was pregnant but shes been pregnant for so many months. I am so worried. I clean the tank and feed them once a day. Please help. See the attached pictures.

Looks like dropsy.  you can get something for it at the petstore.  dropsy is tricky though.  also, could be some sort of digestive issue.  pepso food should be fed to goldfish at least twice a month to help with common bloating issues that occur in goldfish fancy varieties.  it essentially flushes them out.

however, the protruding scales and bloated belly is most likely dropsy.
