What do you feed it?

Snails shouldn't cause this I feed all my plecos snails.

If it's an internal infection and it's still eating you should look into medicated foods.

What foods do you feed it?

If it is eating try a gram negative and gram positive medicated food. You'll need to buy them separately.

This could also be result of feeding too much or the type of food as well. It might not be sick

maybe a parasite or bacteria. I would throw in Prazi/Metro with Furan 2.

Some say epsom salts work for swollen stomachs. Doesn't hurt to try.
