    When my lights came on this morning, I noticed that my Clownfish looked really bloated, like he had just eaten, but he hasn't. I feed every other day, and yesterday was a day off. Are they like Bettas and tend to get constipated? What can this be and is there anything I can do? Please help. He looks miserable. Hard to tell from the pics, but I tried.

    Is he/she cleaning rocks? Could be getting ready to lay eggs.

    The only other clown I have though is a Pink Skunk, and I don't think they can breed. I have had her for about 1 year and this is the fattest I have seen her. If she is backed up, should I try peas. I treated my bettas that way and it seemed to work.
