That looks like abdominal distension to me, not just fat. The area of roundness is too defined. Could be a parasite or worms.

If it was me, I would treat the tank with prazipro, just to be on the safe side. It's easy to use, just follow directions on the bottle. It kills a variety of worms. I used it on my reef tank a while back and it didn't hurt any corals or dusters. Hope your fish gets better!

Most LFS will carry it. My Petco doesn't, but some of the smaller LFS do. When I used it, it cost about $10 for enough for 2 treatments, which helped my fish look/act more normal.

Thank you that helps a bunch. I thought I was maybe over feeding her.

That may be a stubby though... They don't grow as long and are more rare. We had a pair of them in my little bros tank. Look em up and see before you treat.

I've had these pair for over year now. I've seen her like this before but went away. And today her tummy isn't as big.
