Fat fishy.

In one of my freshwater tanks i keep pristella tetra, lemon and harliquin rasb and I have one pristella tetra that wont stop eating.. and will chase and or fight for every last scrap even after everyones finished and is uninterested in food shes the only fish still bobbing around grabbing whatever she can, she is the biggest fish in the tank and has a belly twice the size of my other pristella in the tank almost as if shes bloated.

Has anyone else got a fish or fishes that seems to eat strangly large amounts compared to their tankmates?

Fish die belly upward and rise to the surface. It's their way of falling.

LOL I have one female Pristella that is the same way. Very pot bellied compared to the others. She must have decided she wants to look just like her owner! OR maybe there are "foodies" in fish like there is in humans. Too funny! OS.
