Dwarf Gourami Gravid or Iridovirus


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a Dwarf Gourami (DG) that is swollen in the mid section (see photos).  I haven't had many fish problems so I am asking for help.  Is my DG gravid or have Iridovirids?  The males have recently matured and have been building nest at the top of tank and being territorial so I suppose her being gravid is possible?  Thanks in Advance..
