Rasbora heteromorpha - Pregnant or Sick?

XeramatheumNovember 20, 2005

I have 6 rasboras. I've had them about 5 weeks now. One of the fish when I got it was kinda plump in comparison to the others .. i just figured she was pregnant. It's been 5 weeks now and the fish is getting fatter and fatter! 5 weeks seems like a long time to hold eggs .. so I thought maybe she/he has a tumor or something. You can see how fat it is ...

I outlined its belly since it's hard to see it in the picture .. this fish looks like it's gonna explode! Is it pregnant or sick?

They get fed flake everyday and frozen every other day.

I am not sure how long before they lay eggs. A stab would be no more than 1 1/2 months. If it goes longer the fish may have a bacterial disease or dropsy.
