About a week ago I noticed my dwarf gourami getting a little heavy, so I started feeding less flake food and every other day I feed peas instead. Now the little guy has started eating my plants and is still getting fatter.

Please help he's my first fish and I'm attached

4 pea puffers
1 neon dwarf gourami
1 bristle nosed pleco

Have you seen him eating the peas?
Thank you for the reply!

Yes, I put in 2-3 peas and he eats all of them within 4 or 5 hours.

Watch him for irregular swimming and skin lesions. Do a little research on dwarf gourami iridovirus if he gets worse or shows more worrying symptoms.
