I have had this fish in the tank for god.. years now... I noticed today his belly is HUGE... I dunno what the deal is but is it pregnant ? I don't see how it could be because he is the only one of his species in the tank... unless it interbred with something else ??

Or is it sick with something ? Its the fish in the middle of the picture

Looks sick to me, I would beshocked if it is full of eggs being the only fish in there of its species. Good luck! Please becarfull using otc fish medicines, most are toxic. Try salt first just makesure none of the fish in your tank are sensitve to it. Use 1 teaspoon per gallon atwater changes. Very effective vs parasites and ich. I think your fish might have stomach parasites
