Fish on a diet?

This seems silly for me just to ask, but my glofish is has a considerably large stomach. I have another glofish and the overweight one is atleast 25% bigger.

I believe this fish are sterile so being pregnant is out. I tried quarantining the fish to better control how much it can eat to no luck. I figured being overweight would have adverse effects on my fish's life.

Anyone have any idea what I should do? Thanks!

What makes you think they are sterile? Glofish can reproduce.

They don't get pregnant, but they do become gravid with eggs, sterile or not.

If the fish is bloated, the best thing to do is just cut back on feeding, skip a day or two and see if it helps.
