Help?

I keep making the same mistake.
Everytime I feed Napoleon frozen bloodworms (once a week) he seems to get really bloated. I only feed him four pellets a day. I don't want him to get sick but he's getting fat and I know that's not good.
Should I just let him fast for a while or is there something else I should do? Please help me.

P.S. is there any way to remove uneaten food without using a gravel vaccum?

a good way to remove uneaten food and wastes is a turkey baster, really cheap to buy and it is almost 100% certainly not gonna suck up your beautiful fish (unless your fish is hideous, in which case it is guaranteed to never suck up your ugly fish, lol).

im not sure about the feeding thing but i guess letting him fast for a while wouldn't harm him any.

I don't think betta require bloodworms, so if they cause him to bloat, nix them out.
And a fast for a day or two won't hurt.
