What to do with my morbidly obese molly?
I have an orange lyretail molly whose eating habits are out of control, and I need help. He'll (I use that for simplicity, I am terrible with fish gender...what is it?) eat absolutely anything, regardless of its actual purpose...algae wafers, other sinking wafers, frozen blood worms, freeze dried blood worms, and of course the flakes that are actually for him. I have a frog, another normal-sized molly, and three black skirt tetras. None of them are aggressive with food so the orange one has no reason to be such a cow. Anyway, how do I put a fish on a diet? I really would like to avoid having to try to corral him twice a day but I guess it's going to need to come to that. At what point is he/she/it going to just explode for the others to eat him?
Here he is:
You'd think he was a balloon belly...but you'd be wrong.
