PostSubject: Bristlenose large stomach   Fri Aug 19, 2011 7:17 pm

Hello AGAIN

You guys must be getting used to my posts here now right? The last 3 are mine including this.

Anyways, Bristle seems to demolish courgette, as in right through the bottom of the skin. I am happy about this as he seems happy and is enjoying his food. I saw him on the tank though and his stomach has definately gotten larger since I last saw it. It isn't too large but it is starting to round out now. He is still latching onto his food and is still looking healthy. Swimming and latching onto the side as normal too...

Do you guys think he may just be eating too much or do you think there's a chance of bloat?

Using the template HERE and pictures would help for a diagnosis.

Are you feeding anything else apart from the courgette Question

Ohh sorry, forgot about the template. I will be getting pictures when I next see him on the side of the tank, he is always sucking onto the back. xD

Umm, he eats algae wafers, courgette, cucumber and will be having some blood worm if I can find somewhere to buy it. I now have sweet potato as well so that my snowball will have something to eat, not sure if he'll grab some as well or not. xD

I'll edit the first post in a bit. Very Happy

It could be just a case of over indulgence but you could give him some de-shelled peas to be going on with untill you can post some photos Smile.
