i have a male blonde guppy that we've had since before christmas last year. around Jan. 2010 he got really sick. hanging at the bottom barely moving and didnt hardly eat. then we did a huge water change and he perked up and started moving better and eating again. Then he got a huge belly. I'm talking if he was female he'd be ready to drop some fry. it was suggested he might be constipated so for the last month once a week i feed all my fish a half a pea. and they all love it. The yellow guppy's belly shrank a little bit but he is still huge. tonight he wasnt moving at the bottom of tank so i put the net in there and i literally had to nudge him with it to get him to move. he took off like crazy tons of energy, but when he figured he was safe from me he went back down and not easy. i mean he took a nose dive straight down and didnt move and i swear i felt the impact from just watching him hit bottom. so i went after him again with the net and same thing happened. anyway he's in the breeding box we have so if something is seriously wrong with him he's protected from the other fish. he has barely moved since i put him in there. he's breathing fast and has been doing that for a couple weeks. my current readings are up to date. he is in the 20 gal. any ideas or suggestions would be helpful. o and because i've been asked before there is no ammonia in our tap and i do water changes every other day to try to help with the ammonia with no luck.
