Non responsive F8

Post by Newtopuffers1 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 10:26 pm

My F8 puffer seems to have gone through a growth spurt. He had been looking pretty chubby for a few days, and I was becoming concerned because normally after a meal he evens out around an hour later. But he had a bulge on each side of his lower belly. He used to be very curious about whoever and whatever was around and outside of the tank. I went to feed him some glass shrimp, and he hardly looked at me let alone come up to the front to catch them. I’m not sure what is going on with him. If anyone could give me some suggestions or comments that would be great.

Maybe you're overfeeding?
