Help: Bloated Black Neon Tetra

Recommended Posts

.Hi, hope I've posted in the right place (don't post on these forums often).

One of my black neon tetras is extremely bloated for over 2 weeks. Sorry for camera quality. I've also linked a Youtube video of her.


- I change their water with rain-water twice a week

- Feed the tank once every 2-3 days

- Last week the meals have only been peas, no improvement

- She is still schooling

- She still has a strong appetite

- Not gasping at the surface nor is she sinking (however today she started having trouble swimming, as seen in the video)

This problem did occur a month back, however after a week it disappeared (for this duration I fed the tank peas). Not sure what conditions had changed. The rest of the fish are all healthy and she is the only affected fish.

Is there any suggestions for treatment and what is wrong?

Thanks in advance. I don't want to lose her, she's only 2-3 years old.

You can't see it in the photo, however however from behind you can actually see into her and all the bloated sections of her stomach is completely clear. She hasn't got any paleness asides from stretching. Are those symptoms of neon tetra disease too?
