Just a short vid of my new female betta. Haven't named her. It was easier to get a vid than a picture.




She's got a little belly there, you think she's egg bound or is that normal?

She's beautiful! She's tiny. The belly is normal on well-fed babies. Hopefully, some of our betta breeding experts will be along soon that can let you know for sure if she should have that belly.

she is a beauty and I love her big eyes!!
although ive gotten betta gals from MM with bellies like this, hers looks a bit different....is she swimming normally? the vid looks like her tail is lower than her body like a struggle? if shes acting normal and swimming more normal than the quick vid, id say shes ok...if not, maybe fasting her a day or two then feed her a small (the size of her eye) freshly/skinned/thawed pea ....
