My Rusty has had a bit of a belly bloat going on and I have no clue as to what it is. He looks constipated or something but I don't know how this could happen when all my other fish are fine. I also sometimes go two days without feeding them as I read this was good to clear their long digestive tracts so I am not sure as to what the problem is. Can you please take a look at the pic of ol' Copper and give me some insight as to what I should do because he looks very uncomfortable... Thank you so much!!!!

Assuming that is a male, he has a bowel obstruction.

Stop feeding anything, and add 1 TBS dissolved Epsom salt (available at your pharmacy or Walmart) per 5 gallons.

If it's female, she may be egg bound.
