Hi Iv had my fan tails for about 3 months now I keep them in a 35 gallon tank. I have noticed one getting fat the past 5 days I was just wondering whats up with it Its acting fine and swimming happily around and feeding fine. In one way I'm worried for it but Then I look at it and it seems fine acept for being allot fatter. Any advice ?

Thanks :D

Sounds like constipation to me. Green peas will work on this. Monitor the fish carefully. Is there a pineconing effect on the scales? Bulging of eyes? If you suspect dropsy, kindly post your water parameters.:)

Yes, just normal green peas. I use frozen peas, put in a little boiling water just to defrost then peel the shell off, split in two and chuck it in. :)
