male bettas belly about to pop

I have a male betta that won't breed with his female. I've been trying for some time separating, feeding high protein, reducing water in tank, bumping up temp to 83. Nothing now the male betta is having some kind of problem! His stomach is growing HUGE he looks like he is about to burst, but it does'nt seem to be causing him any pain. Any ideas? and yes im sure he is the male.

I don't think so he gets a little flake twice a day the female gets the larger portions of worms and such.

Sounds like constipation.

Try a pea, it may take a few days for him to eat it, but when he does he will surely shrink if it's constipation.
