    I've had my seahorse, Cecilia, for 6 months now and all of a sudden her stomach has become a little bloated looking and her cloaca has a large bubble over it. She is eating and acting normally, but this large bubble is concerning me! Is she producing eggs maybe? Or is this some sort of gas bubble disease? Please help me!

    Hello and Welcome!

    It kinda looks like her cloaca has inverted, which can happen. However, I am not on expert on this and I dont think anyone on the site has experience with this.

    I would contact these people ASAP! They are the real experts with seahorses and can give you the best information on what the real issue is and how to treat
