Aloha guys! Hope everyone is having a great start to their holiday weekend! So over the past few days I’ve been noticing one of my super red long fin plecos getting abnormally larger in the belly area compared to my others, it seems as if the stomach is enlarged to where it looks uncomfortable but the fish seems to be acting fine, I haven’t seen it poop nor really watch for that often but I’ve read online there’s salt baths, salt solutions, or feeding them peas? Any suggestions or experience on this would be very appreciated.

Epsom salt baths 1 table spoon for 3 gallons 2-3 times a day can help with constipation or egg bound fish as epsom salt acts as a muscle relaxant as catfish are more sensitive to salt I would monitor  for any signs of distress. During treatment and remove him if straight away  if he showing any odd behaviour
