    Hi

    Does my danio look like its carrying eggs or do you think it's ill?

    It has always been abit bigger and a bully but now seems like the underside is getting bigger and bigger? My water levels are all good and I don't believe I'm overfeeding them .

    Shes a female full of eggs. The males will encourage her to shed them so they can fertilise them. However normally unless the adults are removed the eggs well be eaten.

    They all look very healthy and happy.

    Thank you for your reply. It has reassuring to know she isn't ill.

    When they are swollen due to illness it looks a much more extreme shape and there are generally other signs too (hanging around at the top of the tank; listless swimming etc).
