My ebjd seems really fat and he just stays at the bottom of the tank. It just happened over night so its not from over feeding. Can this be fixed?
Thanks

Pics would be helpful but otherwise you can dose the tank with Epsom Salt at a rate of 2 tablespoons per 5 gallons of tankwater. Maybe best to refrain from feeding him for the time being

Or try peas in case it is constipation which doesn't necessarily result from overfeeding...

Sorry to hear it died. Stress more likely caused the bloating.

Sorry about your fish. EBJDs are notoriously difficult to get beyond a few inches.

Sorry to hear about your fish ... they seem to really need some special care to keep them in great health ...
