Tiger Barb with big belly

I've had this particular tiger barb for over a year now and her belly pretty much always looks like this (pics attatched). I've never seen any eggs, she eats and swims fine. Just thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas or if maybe I should be concerned??

If you've had it for a year with no real change, especially in behavior, then I wouldn't worry about it.

What do you feed them with? Some freeze dried foods can cause bloating

Try cutting back on the pellets that might be the issue
