Female bettas

Hi, all. I have a sorority with six girls. Three of my girls are round tails or veil tails and they are all pretty sleak. The other three are crowntails and they all have really round bellies. I was afraid I might be overfeeding but I really don't think so and after fasting they look the same. Do crowntails just have a different body shape? I was also thinking maybe eggs? Do females get engorged with eggs even with no males around? Will they release them? Thanks for any insight!

Females always have eggs whether males are around or not. They'll eventually release them and they may eat them, which is ok.

I know exactly what you mean. I have a female crowntail and yes, her body is very very round!! I thought I was overfeeding at first. But now I realize that just is her shape! I've never seen her with eggs so the conclusion is that is just how she is shaped.

Phew... my female CTs (all 4 of them) have those really round guts. They look like the one in your pic! I'm going to assume it's just their body shape... thanks for the posts!
