    He seems to be acting fine, but his belly seems sunkin. Do blennies normally have fat bellies? I fed him monday and tuesday and the next day his stomach is kind of sunk in. Maybe it was how he was harvested?

    He eats well, that is why I am confused. He acts like a happy fish, but I don't like the look of his belly. Everything else is doing great so I am not sure.

    What's the chemical some people use to harvest fish? Then they end up dying a few weeks later?

    Cyanide. Cyanide poisoning is unlikely. It's banned in the vast majority of places.

    I think James is right.
    If he's eating good,then about all it can be is parasites.

    Does a parasite work that fast?
