Are my fish too fat?


Recommended Posts

Hi there! Happy Friday!

I was just wondering if this level of plumpness is healthy...

This is one of my female honey gouramis:


And this is a female corydoras habrosus:



Both fish are acting completely normal and have been this level of plump for about 2 months for the gourami and about 4 months for the cory. I just want to make sure everything ok to prevent things from going south. 

Am I feeding too much? Or could it be a disease? 

I feed about a pinch of food twice a day. Most common things I feed are Spirulina Bug Bites or Bottom Feeder Formula. I also feed Omega shrimp pellets, algea wafers once or twice a week, and ~once a week or two weeks I feed tubefex worms, and once a month I feed frozen baby brine shrimp. 

Thank you!

Your female gourami might also be carrying some eggs in that round belly. 🙂 Both look healthy to me!

If a round belly is a sign of carrying eggs....I wonder how long until I lay them....😂
