Just Bloated? (Photos)

Hey,
My DG is alittle bloated i think, i fed her afew bloodworm in garlic juice last night
as i have heard that this is something fish cant resist - she doesnt normally bloat from this??
She is bloated this morning i think.
She i still growing and i'm aware that DG have that little kinda drop behind their chin and this is normal.
Just their shape.

I needed a second opinion,
Thanks x

Imge no 2 - you can see a slight 'bulge' on her side, this is what its like all the way underneath.

Mine both look like that after they eat. Were they frozen or freeze-dried BW's? Mine bloat more on the freeze-dried ones.

Hmmm, maybe she really liked the garlic and ate a lot more than usual?
I am not really sure about the difference, but when I give mine the freeze-dried ones, they bloat more, ESPECIALLY my BGK, and he is not even the same fish.
I will get some pics later today when I feed mine okay? I am at work right now, and don't get off for another 1/2 hour, and then I don't feed them till about 4pm tonight, (it is 530am where I am right now).
But I will take pics and post them for you.

Thanks, yeah that would be great, Dont go out of your way though.

Thanks to everyone for posting - you were all right, its cool now she's not as rounded anymore, yeah she only normally has like 2 bloodworms, she had like 5 maybe even 6 last night - the garlic must have just been irrasistable for her hahaa.

Thanks again, looking forward to the pics.

Sorry the pic isn't bigger....
But yeah, that's my fat one, and there is nothing wrong with him, and he breathes faster than the other one too. He is my mean one, Gimli.

Aww I'm Sorry To Hear That.
Evilameba - if you dont want to then its fine - would it be rude to ask for pictures if you could? If not then its fine.

All the best - hope you caught it in time
