Does my Zebra danio have Dropsy?
 
Well this particular danio has always been a fatty I have had it for about 1 year and 7 months. Today I noticed that it is really fat and its staying in one place. I don't have a hospital tank,and this is with other fish in a 20 gallon tank.

Wow. That is the biggest danio I have ever seen. Are his scales poking out like a pine cone?

I lost a tiger barb to dropsy. She was HUGE. I don't know of a way to treat dropsy. But then again, there's alot I don't know. I wonder if she may be pregnant? (wishful thinking:))

I don't think so danio's lay eggs then the male fertilizes them so they don't carry baby fish inside them.

When my female angel is about to lay eggs she gets fat. She still holds eggs.
