Question My fish doesn't look right

The fish has red lines on one side but not the other side. He/She is also very fat. I am not sure what the overweightness is from because the other fish in the tank all have normal weight. It isn't dropsy because his scales are not sticking up. I looked all over the internet to figure out what the problem was but I am lost. Can you help me?

Hmm, that would make sense because the fish only has a couple of red lines and they are only on one side. What about the overweightness part though? The fish has had it for a long time. But I only just noticed the red lines a couple of days ago.

The red lines are going away! I am glad the fish is fine. Why would the fish be overweight? The other fish in the tank are not and this fish has had it for a long time. The fish hasn't gained any more weight though.

Could be its internal bleeding/bruising. Like it hit itself on something and has healed over.


As for the weight, it could just be due to the fact that its a little more greedy than the others, and gets its fair share of food... or it could be a female, which tend to be a little more plump due to them having eggs.
