      Can you take another photo with your hand behind it so the focus is on the fish, rather than the background? It's too blurry to see any detail.

      Tumor.

      Take a focused picture of what appears to be a swollen gut.

      As fish decompose fast a dead fish provides little information to identify the cause to its death.

      This fish died from bacterial issues. You can see scar tissue from the areas that tried to heal. It rotted out from the inside as it looks like it was a systemic infection. It did not do this over night either. It is important to look closely at your fish each week to make sure that nothing is going wrong.
      people like to vehemently defend their purchases and find it incredulous that anything could be better
