Bloated Upside Down Catfish or Just Over fed?

My upside down cat hangs out in the same cave as my BGK does. When I feed the BGK frozen bloodworms at night, because of how the cave is, only the BGK and the catfish have access to the frozen bloodworms.

The BGK is good sized so naturally I give him a generous helping, which means the upside down cat has access to a buffet (he's still 2"). The catfish is still active, and has had a large stomach for awhile, large like he has a marble in his stomach.

Do upside down cats usually have large bellies (kinda like how otos get large bellies? Or is this abnormal. I actually have a digital camera now, so I'll get some pics up tommorow, once I learn how to upload them

I am also curious about this. Have you snapped any pics?

I have 2 of these fish and I have noticed that they have really fat bellies! I can't get a shot of them thought since they spend most of their time under the driftwood...
