    hi i have 3 male guppies and one of them since yesterday has a really fat stomach, its bigger than it is after they eat, its been like this for 2 days, he's still eating, i feed flakes once a day and algea wafers for my cories, which the guppies eat too every 2 days. he kinda has a bit of poop sticking out of him sometimes.......how do i know whats wrong, the other fish are interested him alot, but he is still acting normal

    what should i do?

    You might want to try feeding some cooked peeled peas. He may need more vegetable matter in his diet right now. Some spirulina flakes might also help.

    He's probably just fat. A constipated fish has clamped fins, trouble swimming, and no poop. Try to feed less or more variety.
