Six line wrasse very large stomach

Recommended Posts

So I've had my six line wrasse for one year and 5 months now. Over the passed 4 or 6 weeks his stomach started getting larger and larger. It's at the point now that I can see through the bubble cause it's stratched so far. He eats and swims normal. So change in how it behalfs 

Any ideas what this could be

I have read a question on Bob Fener's site about this exact thing with a 6 line.  The thought was it ate something it shouldn't have and is clogged up.  He recommended adding Epsom salt to the tank at a rate of 1 teaspoon per 5 gallons.  There are other Epsom salt treatment methods out there also that you would need him to be moved to a hospital tank, but this can be done in the display.  Hope he turns around for you!

Interesting. Well it started to go down without me doing anything so I held off. It's been a few days and he's blowing back up to where he was.... 

I don't get how he is acting normal but clearing this can be right
