fat fish

Hi all

Just wondering...some of my fish look "fat". A couple are clearly pregnant (carrying the weight in "that" region) but a couple of them just look plump all around the sides. One black skirt tetra and one leopard danio. I wonder if they happen to be the fastest swimmers so they get the most food or what.

If I am overfeeding, will they get fat before they die? Do fish get overweight? To be honest I am still experimenting with how much food I give them. A pinch of flakes a day seems to be too much. There's only six black skirt tetras and four leopard danios. Plus some bottom feeders.
