I have had this group of 16-17 Petrochromis since they were about a month old. I do not want anymore to pass. Anyone know if this is bloat?

The stomach seemed to buldge out just a bit and when I pushed on it lightly stuff squirt out of the stomach area.

Just to get a starting point what are the water readings? Diet?

I don't take water readings.

I was feeding them spirulina flake but now I am switching it to Tropheous veggi flake.

If you suspect it is bloat stop feeding. that would be my first guess, treat with metro and see.
