Question Wrasse with HUGE stomach - Death inevitable??

Hello MR,

My wrasse has a huge belly for months and it only appears to be getting larger.

The fish still has a healthy appetite and only displays a little difficulty swimming. Please see attached pics and video and let me know if there is anything I can do.

Thanks in advanced MR

most likely a bacteria infection. Try prazipro. If doesn't work, then use API general cure.

They worked for me before
