Hey guys

No ‘signs of illness’
Parameters are fine
0 ammonia
0 nitrites
5 nitrates


So I was doing my tank stuff today and noticed this tetra bloated. Trying to get a pic is a pain. Suggestions? Should I worry? I did give the tank pellets today, maybe she got one of my angels pellets?! I didn’t notice this in the morning but I also wasn’t really looking too close.

I hope the photos you can pick out the slightly rounded one ☺

I also have Cardinal Tetras and when they breed it happens so fast you don't even see it happen, I would not worry about it, the'll eat the eggs as fast as they can lay them.

Thanks all! yes I should have worded that better. Yes I know they can’t ‘get pregnent’ I wasn’t thinking king when I typed- full of eggs is why I meant lol. Oh gee long semester guys.


She’s slI'm again so I’m betting She was full of eggs and they were eaten upon release. My female betta does the same all the time- it is oddly fast, I must have just caught it

Thanks so much!!
