striata body shape...revisited

now that i've learned that the stripes narrow as striatas grow, i'm wondering about the body shape. some of mine seem to maintain the shorter wider body profile while others have elongated out. it is quite reminiscent of other fish that i have where the males are long and the females shorter but broader bodied...does anyone know if this is characteristic of striatas?
