I've had this lyretail molly about 3-4 months and just recently he has gotten very fat. He is definately an agressive eater but is this just a fat molly or could it be something else?

If you have females around they could have recently dropped fry and he could be having his fill on them. I have a betta with platy in my son's tank and I know immediately when we've had shrimplets or fry in the tank as he's a pig and stuffs himself on them then refuses to come to his feeding spot lol and rather keeps hunting with his giant gut looking for more.

I’m pretty sure ballon molly already look like balloons at the time of purchase and The OP says that this size is abnormal for this fish.
