My colisa has been HUGE for the past weeks, and keeps getting bigger. He has been just hidden the whole day, doesn't move much and hasn't eaten. I though he was just REALLY fat, but I don't think that anymore.
Does someone has any clue what this might be??

The fish has an internal bacterial infection (dropsy) and is dying. Wrap it in a couple of paper towels, take it outside and euthanise it. then wash your hands well with soapy water.

I'm sorry to say but your fish definitely looks like it has dropsy, which is not curable at the stage he looks to be in. If you don't have the stomach to euthanize the way Colin_T recommended then I would buy some clove oil and euthanize him that way. I'm sorry your little guy is so ill ?
