Frozen bloodworm=big belly! HELP!

Kyon is looking rather bloated. I think I've over fed him with frozen bloodworm I give him as a treat today. Will he be ok? Panicking like mad!

Don't confuse a normal full tummy with bloat and treat needlessly......generally with bloat you will have other signs/symptoms along with the enlarged tummy.....like-buoyancy issues, lethargic, rapid breathing, hiding, clamp fins, not eating or pooping to name the most common S/S seen with bloat......

Other than the enlarged stomach.....any other S/S? if so, we need more info...

Tank size, water temp, filter, live plants, how much and how often are the water changes, appetite, tank mates, additives used, health history...etc....and a pic....

No literally came up after feeding. It's my own fault, I didn't state to my OH the proper way of feeding frozen food and he just dropped the frozen block in there! No other side effects. He's just moved house again. See my other post in betta chat catagory. I didn't put this in the emergency because I really do think I've just over fed. I've never over fed before. Will he be ok?

He should be fine, however, I would hold food for at least 24h and watch for any other S/S of true bloat and/or behavior changes that last more than 12h.

I would make a water change as well today and tomorrow. The excessive food will increase the waste produced plus the cube already released worm blood into the water.

He was fed in the old tank before he was moved to the 15g so no polution. He's fine today. His tummy is back to normal size and he's eaten a flake or 2 of the tetras. He's fairly chilled today and is investigating his surroundings.
