    They do look a bit too round. We can't tell from pics if it's from overeating, bloating, eggs, etc. though.

    I g
    I give them granomix small size around 12.00 and then normal fish food novobel around 19.00. Once a week i give to apistogramma freez dried tubifex and rasboras get some. I gave them now some peas and will skip feeding them tomorrow. Then i will update situation.

    Make sure to soak freeze dried foods before feeding, otherwise you can make them bloat.

    Hi all just to report, so i did feed them last night with some peas and today they look better so i think it was overfeeding problem. I will start feeding them once a day and every other day different food.
