Smile Flame tetra acting strangely!

My flame tetra is quite plump, and has has a quite lumpy tummy but she isnít showing any other signs of carrying eggs? She is also acting strangely, swimming tilting down and joltily, as well as not shoaling with the others. Iím no expert but Iím hoping sheís carrying eggs and just showing a few signs of stress, rather then something else! We lost a dwarf gourami a few months ago to what we think was swim bladder disease, Iím really hoping itís not that. I canít work out how to attach photos to this, could someone help (how to put up a photo of the tetra or the tetra problem if you can without a photo!) Thanks

Sick fishes are the most stressful, not being able to upload photos adds to the stress. I know, Iíve been there...

Thereís a paperclip icon (not on quick reply) and you can click it. It opens a new screen for you to upload photos. I do all of them on my iPhone so itís much easier I guess. Give it a go!

Hope someone can help with the fish question =(

Not sure if itís a symptom of over feeding. Iíve a particular hungry ember tetra that had a similar symptom. I fed them less and itís bloated tummy went away. But, again, hard to tell. Better wait for the pros!

Hehe yes, there’s a photo now! And my goodness that IS huge. I’ll leave it to the pros here. Looks pregnant almost. Do monitor to see if it’s swimming fine.

I believe she is, you can tell the difference between pregnancy and bloating with the squared off of there bellies
