    Ok so I have a delhezi sen and I've had him for a couple years now. He is a cb del but I have been wondering something. I see pictures of delz that are thinner and in my opinion healthier looking then you see the ones that are really thick with the big bellies and the high backs, you know what I'm talking about. Anyways, mine would fall into the category of the fitter looking delz but should he be thicker?

    Healthy looking Del, I think you will find as he grows he will thicken up as well. Nothing to worry about.

    He looks pretty healthy to me. Similar to my male. My female is much thicker.

    yes healthy. I do not like overly fat bichirs. They look unnatural and unhealthy to me. Just my opinion
