Well her stomach is definitely noticeable but even her whole body is more full than the other ones..I'm thinking she is just a big girl cause other than that she's very active and zooms across the tank all the time.

Can you take a picture?

If she is swimming okay and acting its probably just her body structure

Hmmm she does look a little round but I can't really tell if its problematic. May just be normal...

Opinions anyone?

I have a very aggressive eater on my hands too, I have to cup her when I feed so that the other fish even have a chance to eat because she will nip and bite the food away from my other girls.

Looks like a healthy large girl is all- the only thing that caught my eye was the spine by the tail, is it just the picture or is it curved?

She's quite round, the female in the first picture... but she honestly doesn't look that overweight to me, especially for a female. If it was Dropsy related you would see symptoms. The female in the second picture doesn't look skinny to me either. Some Bettas put on weight easily, others you cannot keep it on them. Just like people!

That's just the picture, lol.

Thanks everyone! I feel a lot better now.
