    Evil, Evil Zebra Danio's

    Does my Fish Have Dropsy??

    So I was wondering whether or not my zebra danio has dropsy or if it's just over weight. The fish doesnt have pineconing scales and seems perfectly fine other than his protuding stomach. When it comes to eating, the fish devours all the food and steals it from other fish. Hes always seems to...
