Hello fellow fish people!

Today I’ve come with a question. My past few bettas have had this odd pooping thing where they won’t poop for a few days, then all of the sudden they’ll poop this big lump. They aren’t constipated, I feed high fiber and frozen foods, the poop is squishy as normal (I know TMI) but I was wondering if this is just what bettas do or if I’m doing something wrong. I’ve noticed this is almost always accompanied by fin chewing but I have no proof as of now with this fish. I’ll insert a few pics and you can tell me what you think. FYI the breeder box is only temporary until I figure out what’s going on and his fins heal up from some minimal damage.

Mine never did that. Any eyes out there? Betta Obsessed any thoughts?

I’m glad mine were dainty fellows. Not sure I would’ve enjoyed plooping.

One of the girls in my sorority's poop looks like a terra cotta plort vase, with the swirly ploot on top. And they're all heavy I try to suction them out, and nothing!
