Hello I am new to this website but I decided to make an account so I could get some answers for this question. Anyways, I've had this female betta for about 4 months now, and shes always been on the chubby side no matter how much I tried to diet her (we've dubbed her Trish the Thicc Fish). In the past few weeks however, she's gotten a LOT bigger.

Very obese compared to this other betta I'm fishsitting for the summer. Her scales are not pineconed, and she's still eating like the little pig she is. I have tried fasting het a few times but I have found it difficult since she lives in a community tank. I have also given her a pea last weekend, but she still hasnt shown signs of losing weight. Her behavior is also normal for the most part-- she still swims around and bothers my Cories for their food (she never eats it though, just gets curious). Sometimes she sits in the cave or under some of my plants but as soon as I approach the tank she's back to her normal self, which is pretty active. I cant tell if she is getting sick or just bloated from eating food she shouldnt have been. I'm hoping it ismt the former because I can't afford a quarentine tank or antibiotics right now can someone help me identify the problem?
