Lionfish in trouble

9 Apr

Oh my goodness, my Dwarf Lion acts so healthy but I think he/she is in trouble. I just saw this bulge in the anal area, a prolapsed intestine I believe. What can I do? Nothing much I’m afraid. I’ll stop feeding the Lion for awhile, and make a water change soon.

I fear the worst. How can this just pop back inside? Not likely. And is it my fault? Did I overfeed the Lion and cause this?

This is my favorite fish. The prettiest,  most amazing fish.

    Contact a fish vet, see if they can help?

      I’ll keep searching the Internet. So far he seems healthy and I hope to stumble on a solution.

      Thanks. Every day I come home I look and hope but it doesn’t have the appearance of something that will just fix itself. I hope it does, though.

      Thank you, I want him to live along happy life. I’ve tried my best and sometimes things go wrong anyway.

    So how is the lion doing? Better? Worse? The Same? Have you found anything on the internet to help the little lion?

      I have cut way back on feeding the Lion and he acts very healthy and ravenous. The intestinal issue is still there. Every day I hope to see improvement but at least it is no worse.
