I noticed my Betta’s tummy has been looking a little bigger. Not a lot, but just a little bit. I feed him only twice a day, but he looks a little off. I’ve attached some pictures..it’s hard to get good ones while he’s swimming around Does it look like he’s constipated? I know I post so many questions on here, but I want to be a good mommy!

From the pictures he looks quite healthy maybe skip a day of feeding then give him some defrosted frozen peas, make sure to take the skins off my fish love peas

Daphnia food is supposed to help clear out their gut as well... I couldn't find it at the local fish store, so I ordered it on Amazon. I lost a molly to SBD, tried feeding peas, but it didn't really like them. I'll periodically feed all my fish daphnia as a preventative now.

I just purchased some freeze dried Daphnia on Amazon! How much are you supposed to feed them?

I've read that it's 'light' food and goes through them easy so somebody said they don't worry about overfeeding it.. I'd say a 'heafty' amount compared to regular feeding.
