Danios fat or sick?
Hi all,

I have 2 Danios one is a blue longfin and the other is a golden one in a 10 gallon along with 4 harlequin Rasboras. I've had both of these fish for about two weeks now and I am concerned because both of them have gotten fat protruding pink stomachs. First, My golden one and now my blue one. They both are swimming around just fine active and attentive. There spines are not crocked and they both have healthy appetites so I am pretty sure it is not TB. (Having spent the last hour reading about it and making sure it wasn't). Neither of them have scales standing up...I only feed them once a day and the ph is neutral there are no visible parasites in the tank. So I am really not sure what's wrong with them. :| So if anyone has any suggestions that would be great.
