I’ve recently brought some harlequin Rasboras when I got home and put the fish in my tank I noticed one of them has a big belly, I have posted some pictures they’re the best I could get unfortunately what is the cause of this? Will it be okay any help would be much appreciated. TIA

Hi and welcome to the forum :)

I can't see any pictures. Can you try posting them again?

It's definitely not normal.
It could be a tumour or cyst, but neither can be treated.
You could take it back to the shop and swap it for another.

Hi, the fish unfortunately passed away, I have looked at my fish today and another fish looks very similar? It did not look like this before

Why is the picture blue?

If you have another harlequin from the same batch as the one that died, and it has the same problem, take them all back and get a refund or credit because they could all have the same problem.
