260 0
my female cory and rainbow fish seems to have big bellies.Its mostly the female ones with huge bellies. They all are very active and I don't see any scale pine coning or bulging eyes but they have fat bellies which makes me fear about dropsy. I usually feed them microworms twice a day. But for planning to not feed them for next 2 days while I treat the tank with api melfix and pimafix as well as aquarium salt. I do 25% water change and gravel vac twice a week. I attached a link to my reddit comment with pic since imgur isn't working right now. Thanks for the help
