Can fish explode?

This might be a stupid question, but...can fish burst from overeating...and I'm not trying to be funny. Well, maybe a little...but I'm pretty serious. My blenny sometimes looks like his stomach will rip open...and that kind of worries me.

Yes. I mean, it can happen to people to. But for fish it can be like a full blown ruptured belly. I wouldnt worry too much about it though, I've only seen small fish like guppies explode. Plus, my blenny always looks like its going to explode too and it hasnt. ....yet, anyway.

Have you had it long? Like is it young? I've noticed with my fish that when they were younger they would stuff themselves, now, not so much. Maybe its a phase?

My blenny is about 4" long. But is quite skinny, I am trying to fatten him up. It is taking a while to do that, though.
