Is this normal?

My baby betta's belly looks bloated to me today. She's only about an inch or a little long, I think maybe around 12 weeks. Is this normal or is she bloated? The last time she ate was this morning and I am skipping her evening feeding. Is there something more going on?

Sorry the pics are so blurry...

And as long as you're looking....what type of fin do you think she is?

What do you feed her? (Brand name)

How often do you feed her?

How much do you feed each time?

As for the fin type, since she's young, her fins are still growing so it's difficult to know right now. Give it awhile longer.

Could her eggs be developing? To me, right now, she looks like a comb tail.

I feed her 2-3 times a day. The hikari food for babies. Just a little bit each time but it's hard to say a number of pieces cause it's so tiny!

Are her buoyancy and swimming OK?

I think she's fine. If she's a little more bloated than usual, just cut back a little on food or skip one meal.

Yep! I guess I'll just cut back on food a bit and keep an eye on her. Thanks!
