    Welcome lynngustaitis!
    What does the bloat look like? Any raised scales, is the fish floating upside down?
    Can you post a picture?

    Welcome @lynngustaitis ! Sorry to hear your fish is having trouble! You'll find lots of helpful people here. Any info you can add to fill out the picture would be great - size of pond, how many fish and type, what kind of filtration, any recent changes, etc. And as @MitchM said - a photo of the fish will be helpful!

    @lynngustaitis Hello and welcome! Sorry to hear about your fish! Yes, please give us more information about your pond.....and what you are calling “the bloat.” And please tell me what a “Miranda fish” is? And not to sound rude, but please use punctuation — it’s hard to follow what you are saying when all the words run together.
    • How big is your pond?
    • How many and what size fish do you have?
    • Do you have any filtration?
    • How long has your pond been set up?
    • Where do you live — what climate zone?
    • Please describe what you mean by “the bloat.”
    • Do you test your water and if so, what are the numbers for your tests?
