Bloat?

Recommended Posts

Bloat aka Malawi bloat is a condition that affects mbuna fed too much protein. I don't know all the specifics of it but it has to do with their intestines not being able to properly digest all the protein which then gets stuck giving them a 'bloated' appearance.

 

It is almost always fatal. You could try immediately switching to a low protein diet like spirulina flakes and feeding lightly cooked shelled peas which are supposed to be like a natural laxative.
