Hi guys, new to this whole fish thing and learning as i go. Could my tiger barbs be pregnant, we just brought them home on saturday and they looked fine, but today their bellies are swollen. Here is whats going on in our tank at the moment:
36 G with:
2 pictus catfish - I think one of them has ick
1 velvet swordtail - has ick
3 - tetras
4 - fruit tetras
1 - neon blue dwarf gourami
3 - tiger barbs
We just noticed the ick last night, so i raised the temp to 80F from 78F and added the salt, plus today i did a 20% water change and added some Quick Cure at half dose.
The tiger barbs dont have ick, but like i said all the sudden their bellies swelled up today on 2 of them, could they have eaten too much?
Thanks for all your help, I've learned some much on this site already!
