I say fast for a while ( 3 days tops) and make sure that little finned balloon of yours needs excersise too!!! Put a mirror next to the bowl and let him flare for a good 10 minutes each day until he regains his softly rounded belly. Good luck!

yeah i have my grandfather feed Lulu when i go away and i showed him really clear the right amount to feed her. I haven't had any problems so far. But yeah i told him only 3 pellets or one worm or she'll get sick- so he knows.

I was pretty lucky to have someone who followed my instructions while I was on vacation. My neighbor has fish and has had bettas so she knows the dangers of overfeeding.

Next time I'll leave instructions, I just feel bad I didnt know he was coming...:/

When I go on vacation next year for a week I'm going to bring the betta's over to my best friends house, she has one so it should work out well. :)

I'm sorry to hear about him. Yes, like everyone said I would fast for a while, maybe a day past when the swelling goes down. I'm sorry about that, there was nothing you could do though. Make sure you let your dad know that someone will be there if they will so you can leave instructions next time.
