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.

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!
