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

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.

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!
