One of my rasboras are a bit fat. She (might be a he, don’t really know) has been like this for about 2 months. Anyone know why?

This is a repost since the original one didn’t get any response. I’ve had a rasbora that’s been very fat for about 2 months. I thought it would go away after a while but it hasn’t. I’m guessing she’s (if it is a she) pregnant.

She’s fatter than she looks in the picture.

To me, it looks like she's deformed, not fat.

Well it depends on whether or not you bought those fish or bred them.
If you bred them then it could just be from inbreeding or if you bought them and then they had the babies it could be because whoever had them might not have had good water quality.
Plenty of things could be the reason

My question still hasn’t been answered, why is she fat?

I personally don't think it's fat, we think it looks deformed more than it looks fat.

Agree with Blaze
The curve in the spine pushes the intestials outwards so it looks fat.

Didn’t know that, thanks!
