baby betta over ate

My baby Hannibal escaped his half of my divided 10 gallon tank. On the other side of the barrier are three oto cats and he decided to eat their algae wafer. He's bloated now and I'm wondering if it's okay to fast a baby for a day...

So...is it okay to fast a baby for a day?

Maybe just put him on a strict diet of 1-2 mini pellets a few times a day until he starts looking normal shaped again? I'd be worried about completely fasting a baby, but I'm not an expert - my baby betta is a work in progress too! Perhaps someone else will have a more knowledgable answer.

The swelling went down over the night and I gave him breakfast. I won't feed him until dinner or later then get back on the normal diet tomorrow. Silly thing.
