Red Tailed Shark is very fat

Hello everyone, i have a Red Tailed Shark and i left him to go camping this weekend. i put a weekend feeding block in his tank and when i came home he seemed very fat. my dad said he fed him while i was away because he didnt know about the feeding block so is it possible that my shark just ate too much or is it some kind of disease? thanks

Could be either. Don't feed him for a couple days and observe.

When you are away, for up to a week, the fish will be fine without any food.

Like Byron mentioned, you do not need to worry about feeding the fish if you are going to be gone for a week or less. This is because fish naturally are not able to find food everyday in the wild, so they will not starve without food for a short period of time. I always remember the saying "A hungry fish is a happy fish".
