    Ive had 3 chain loaches for about 3 months in my tank and they have been really happy, active and their colours are beautiful, however this morning ive noticed that one of my loaches tummy is really big and swollen. Could someone give me some advice??

    What kind of food do you feed?

    Any change in your water parameters?

    The waters are exactly the same and we feed flake twice a day with 2 fast days. sometimes blood worm before a water change

    It could be constipated, fast for a day or two then try feeding daphnia or a deshelled pea & see if that helps.
    They need a bit more variety in their diet, try feeding frozen food a bit more often & sinking pellet or wafer & veg
