    If so do I have to euthanize it ?

    Thanks.

    It does not appear to be showing any symptoms of the Iridovirus. However, it could be carrying the virus.

    The main issue I see on the fish is a fat bloated abdomen. This can be caused by too much food or an internal infection.

    Is the fish still eating?
    what does the fish's poop look like?

    Hi,

    Thank goodness. It just ate, I’ll observe it and see how it’s doing by the end of the day.

    Thanks!
