Mine seems to breath heavier than the rest of the fish and he is healthy. It may just be their metabolism. It bothered me for a while too.

He's still doing well... I'm guessing because they don't have a swim bladder... It's gotta be hard moving those huge algae filled guts around the tank...

Funny I was thinking the same exact thing about mine

I have noticed that he breaths heavier than the other fish. He is active and fat
I thought something was wrong at first but thats just the way he is.
