Is this normal

One of the bettas at my sorority gets really fat every time I feed them, I don't think I am overfeeding because the other ones are doing just fine.
She is really active and shows no signs of disease but I am no expert, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is she normally a little "thicker" than the others? I have a CT female thats a little heftier I think because she's more eggie. She doesn't eat more than the others she's just a plus sized girl.

Plus sized girl. LOLROTF.
Now that you say it, she has always been a little "thicker" than the other ones.

That's not normal. Either she's overeating or there's something else going on.

Is she pooping regularly? What color is it?

How much do you feed her, exactly? How old is she and about how large is she?

Callistra, I am not sure if she is pooping regularly or the color of the poop.
Mollyjean I don't know how old is she since she was rescued from a lfs but she is about 1.25 inches.

How's she doing? You might cup and float her in the tank to monitor poop and feeding a few days

I put her in a breeding box floating in the same tank, with the other girls, and she hasn't poop since yesterday.
