Mollie is bloated and hiding.
 
Ony of my male Mollies is swimming weird and is completely bloated:

He is staying towards the bottom or hiding. The belly is HUGE and has white bubles on it.

Can someone tell me if he is going to be ok? he was fine the other day.....the tank is completing the cycle (tank parameters and everything are posted on my tank info.

He has been hiding by the hornwort for a while.

He just came out and pooped. His droppings green just like the hornwort.

I have not seen him flashing. yet...

Oh I almost forgot.

I had an otto that died. Its belly got swollen and it died. Almost the same thing? It was bigger than the one I have now.

Chat Room- ID Disease

Mikaila ID'ed the disease as Dropsy:

Hopefully he makes it.

I made a water change and he is swimming around more than he was. Hopefully he will recover quickly :).

It is dropsy, possibly caused by over feeding.

He is not as swollen today!!!!!

Although his scales are still pine conning a little. He has gone done and is swimming like a champ

GO CLEMENTINE GO GO GO!!

his breathing has also slowed down a bit to a more normal range, although still fast.

Thank you everyone for your help. Water changes rule!
