    Sick Puffer Fish

    My puffer fish looks like he or she is bloated. He continues to hang out at the bottom of my tank. He did eat alittle bit today. He is a stars and stripe puffer. What should I do if he is suffering from bloat?

    Unfortunately I don't know anything about puffers. Hopefully someone with some knowledge will check in soon.

    Sorry I am late! =0 In the middle of moving, you guys know how that can be - just got the internet hooked up.

    The most common reason for a bloated belly on a puffer is eating, lol - they can stretch their stomachs to amazing lengths! They can have trouble with their swim bladders as well, and this can cause bloating - I would need a bit more info. First of all, though, how is this fish doing right now? I apologize again for being late - is an update available?
