What's wrong with my fish?

    She's not eating. Acting a little agitated even if she's just being still somewhere in the tank her tail wiggles more than normal. She seemed to be twitching a little bit not swimming sideways or anything like that, more like shivering. Water parameters are normal. No raised scales.

    Tank mates are two Otos four ghost shrimp, some snails and another guppy who is in a breeder net because she's ready to pop. At first I thought this one was pregnant too I still think she might be but no dark spot. She does have a big belly but the Gracie spot is like orange. She was eating fine yesterday but today she even refused her bloodworms.

    Big belly, like bloat? Idk if that makes them agitated but I'm sure its not exactly comfortable.

    I just looked at bloat in guppies and no I don't think that's what she looks like. Her behavior is what's really odd and her not wanting to eat.

    No that's the first thing I checked with a flashlight. No raised scales anywhere on her.

    It could be a number of things, and very hard to tell. By your test results, I'm assuming your using strips to test?

    A lot of the time, when my guppies start what your experiencing, something was off in my water. Sometimes just a slight water change helped.

    You could also try a little bit if aquarium salt or Epson salt to see if you can get that bloat down.

    Have you noticed when the last time she pooped?

    No it was actually Api master test. I did a water change just now with prime. I will qt her and use salt next. I last actually saw her poop yesterday.

    Maybe shes just been constipated?

    Hmmm... I am getting suspicious, I saw that I have newly hatched ghost shrimp in the tank. I'm starting to think she's lazy because she's pregnant and has been gorging on baby shrimp...
