I just saw one of my petricola and his stomach is huge. I tried to get pics but he wont sit still long enough. I have 3 or 4 that kinda look like this but not as bad as this one. This one is also the largest of the group. I only feed them maybe every 3 days. Nls wafers. I also just noticed he is also missing an eye. is there hope for him?

It is flat and normal where his mouth is, then his stomach looks like a balloon about to pop, the his body continues as normal. They are a little over 2 inches. Pregnant possibly?

My petricolas eat alot to the point they look bloated, I wouldn't really worry about it yet just keep an eye on them and maybe fast them for a day or two.

I fast mine for two days then if they still have some bloating I hand feed them de-shelled blanched peas. Mine are pretty tame, so hand feeding isn't an issue.
