Sixline wrasse bloated

My six-line wrasse looks fat. I just noticed it today.

I don't know why because I only feed once a day. Any help?

Alot of people only feed their fish every other day. Might be the reason. How is he doing?

He is swimming around fine like usual swimming around between rocks. He just looks like he ate too much. None of the other fish have a fat stomach.

It could be over feeding or a possible internal problem. How is he doing now? Have you reduced feeding?

Well today he looks normal so I guess it was a false alarm.

I have a six line wrasse also, I notice that my other wrasses grow in length as well as their thickness but my six line grows in length slower than his thickness. Mine is fat also. I am thinking maybe that's how they grow? That's my opinion.
