Does this look okay?

I changed Buddha's water today, and I observed him a bit. He's kinda grey in the face now, so he's just like an old man.

But, I noticed he looks kinda thin :/
He gets fed 2 pellets a day with no fasting days because anymore than that and he's bloated.

From above, I noticed it more than on his sides. And I am comparing him to three other fish, so that's whats making me curious...

Also, in the temp tank, he was pulling off some weird breathing. He looked as if he was taking in deep breaths while swimming. And even while back in the regular tank, he was huffing. I'm thinking it's because he was stressed, especially because he developed stress stripes rather quickly while switcing...

In the process of Huffing


In the tnak before the change, notice the grey around his gill area


Being that he's probably around a year or more old, I know more things, health wise, are going to pop up

Maybe give him one more pellet a day if you think he's on the thin side?
