    mouth open wide

    Iíve just spotted that one of my fish is swimming around with her mouth stuck open and is struggling to feed . Any ideas why ? Could I just catch her and maybe ease it with a little pressure . Any help will be appreciated .

    I have had her out and sedated her , tried manipulating it , had my little finger in her mouth felt around and its still open .

    That's a shame Oddbod maybe give your local vet a ring or Paula Reynolds on 01205723413 and
    see if they can suggest something to help . Horrible situation for you to be in, goodluck with it.
