Talking He finally pooped! But... When do I feed him?

So, my fish sushi hasn't pooped in a while and he finally did! His stomach is still bloated though and I'm wondering when I should feed him. It's not as bloated but its still bloated. I made the mistake of feeding flakes to a sensitive betta but I bought Omega 1 betta buffet pellets. My goal is to get his digestive system back on track. I don't feed him a lot because of the major constipation. So I need to know when to feed him.

He's living in a 2.5 gallon bettabow. He gets his exersise and plays with his filter. It's funny to watch.

I would wait another day or two before feeding him then start off with one or two pellets. You might try feeding him frozen daphnia.

Daphnia is often suggested. I agree that you should fast him at least a day maybe even two. You can also soak his pellets and limit how you feed him. What kind of food have you been feeding him? Some foods are more prone to causing constipation.
