Just got this red top zebra. Started noticing that his belly is a little sunken. Just bought him do it could be that has not been fed enough. Is this tb and if it is will it spread to my other fish?

Is there any symptom other than the sunken belly? Is he eating OK?

Can you isolate him in a quarantine tank and see if he can gain weight with good feeding and no competition?

Avoid buying fish with concave bellies. If you received him via an online vendor, send a picture of him the day you open the box to the vendor and you will likely be able to get a refund. That said, there is a good chance he will be fine with feeding.

He is eating fine. No other symptoms. Just concerned for him and his tankmates. I unfortunately cannot isolate him as I do not have a spare tank. Thank you.
