Constipated Fish

Before school was out, one of my scientists observed that our pink go fish was swimming in a different manner than the other fish in the tank. We thought it might be dying, but nearly three months later, it is alive and still swimming vertically through the water. My daughter reminded me that many years ago, we noticed her Beta fish swimming the same way. Through her research, she discovered that the Beta was probably constipated. The recommendation for constipated freshwater fish is to feed them peas. I did that today, so here’s hoping, we see some improvement! As Dora would say, “Keep on swimming!” Click here for more information.
