Constipation in goldfish and koi is very common. The cause is usually overfeeding and incorrect diet. Symptoms include swollen stomach region and a lack of appetite. Often the fish will rest at the bottom of the tank and will not move much if at all. Treatment for this condition is to stop feeding the fish for several days. When the behavior and activity of the fish returns to normal , it should be fed peas for at least several more days. Recurrence of this condition is very likely so the diet of the fish should be monitored carefully.
