Siamese algae eater pregnant or fat?

uncclewis

I cannot tell if my siamese algae eater is pregnant or fat. He is much bigger in the waist than the rest and it looks more similar to guppies being pregnant. I have 14 in my 75 gallon, so I am sure that some are male and some are females. Is it preggy? I know they do not breed readily/

He could have bloat. Can you post a pic

OK, he is hiding right now. but I will when I can... thank you!

He died, so you are probably right! I fell asleep with the fluval flow off, and I woke up to him dead and a molly. I didn't realize what happened. I guess my backup canister kept the rest of the fish alive. I turned it on and a cloud of nastiness came out, but now it is clear.

I turned it off during feeding, but forgot to turn it back on! Thanks for the tips!
