Anyone have pic of betta that are too thin?

(I didn't know whether to put this here or diseases, so i chose here)

So, I know what a fat betta looks like, but I want to see what a betta that is too thin looks like. I want to see so I can make sure my little guy is a good healthy tummy size.

She looks like a Tadpole :( Minnie

He looks fine. If he were too thin you would be able to tell where the head starts and ends because it would be bony on the sides. I keep my bettas a little thicker than yours but that's just my preference.

Is it better to keep them thicker than that or is it just pure preference?

As long as mine are happy, healthy and eating fine... I don't stress on how thick they look. I posted mine from the top because you can see how visibly skinny her body is compared to her head. You're guy looks like a healthy weight to me :)

It's pure preference. I breed some of my fish so I feed them larger amounts of rich foods all the time, when I condition the amount increases but I don't have to condition for too long because they are already so well fed.

Oh so do you keep them thicker so you don't have to condition for as long?
