Poor Gilligan is bloated

My poor betta male is bloated. I guess he liked his new pellets too much. I am going to fast him for a day or two and hopefully it goes down. If you have any advice please let me know.
Thanks

How much do you feed him? The reccommended amount is 2-3 pellets twice a day.

I usually feed him 2-3 but today i fed him twice since I didn't feed him much yesterday. It was my fault and i know i overfed him. Is there any way i can get him back to normal sooner?

I would fast him for 2-3 days and then feed him some daphnia, either frozen or freeze dried.

Okay, maybe have her to feed him half of what you normally feed him. He'll be okay, he won't starve. :)

I hope so. Have you seen him poop? He may be constipated. Fasting helps constipation.

Im not sure. He usually poops. I can't tell anymore because once he poops, the algae eater eats it.
