30 Gallon Tank Obese male rosy tetra problem

Prevasist

I've recently noticed one of my male rosy tetras has gotten very fat compared to the other males. His stomach has become noticably round. He kinda looks like how a female looks when they have eggs in stock. And I am 100% sure he is male.

Could he have eaten something like plant matter? Or is he over fed? I haven't seen them eat that much and I don't feed them too much either



I actually also have a female rosy tetra who seems to be with eggs. But it's been like this for awhile now, I'd say around a month. I've noticed her breathing is much faster than the others and her color is lighter than the other females, just slightly. She doesn't do much in the tank and I haven't noticed any abnormal behavior with her. She's been very "big" compared to the others for a long time now.

Try fasting them for a few days, that should help determine with that male. Or maybe try feeding them some frozen daphnia, might be constipated.
