Posting here, AGAIN: Lelouch throwing up????

Hey guys, I seriously hate posting in here, ugh.

Sticky Stuff:
- 5G heated/cycled/divided tank
- no live plants except James the mossball
- alone on one side
- Chemistry: 0,0,5.0

Lelouch has "thrown up" 3 times in the past half hour. He's NOT bloated at all, maybe a small food bump but nothing serious. I haven't fed him today at all (it's early morning, 7am) and the last time he hate was 2 pellets last night.

I feed him 2 pellets breakfast, 2 pellets dinner.

His vomit is pellet coloured but slightly brighter/less saturated. Unfortunately sometimes he'd try to eat it again, but a bunch of it has sunk to the bottom (that I vacuumed out)

I moved him to the empty half of his tank just so I know he can't eat anything in there and/or find pellets that have for some reason lost my sight when I was feeding him. So he's got no more potential elusive pellets around.

I think I saw a post of somebody who also had a puking betta floating around somewhere but it has eluded me as well.

Is there too much movement in the tank? From a filter maybe? When I was doing a water change yesterday, I managed to bump the tank and the water moved around a lot throwing my boy around.. He threw up after that.. First time I've seen a fish throw up. O.o
Or the pellets could have been bad and the body decided to expel them?

Bahamut, hope you can figure out what's happening with your fish and that it feels better soon!

Exactly, I was like: Fish get sea-sick?! Omg! He didn't eat after that though, he was probably still squeamish :P

LOL Fighter! That sounds pretty funny. He seems to have stopped for now but he's kind of sulking in his cave again. He comes out when I come near the tank, though, swims happily. I'll keep an eye on him :/....I didn't really change anything so maybe the food was bad? I just freaked out because he puked like, 2 pellets worth :X

Thanks earthworm, I'll tell him you said get well soon :D

Sorry to hear Lelouch is sick. I hate throwing up. Seriously, I actually have a phobia of it (not kidding). Poor Lelouch, I hope he just ate a bad pellet. Get well soon, Lelouch, Bahamut doesn't need any more stress while she's getting Redbeard II settled!

Is he spitting the food out right after eating it or is it some time afterward?

He might be impacted... That causes vomiting in mammals. Is there anything he could have eaten in his tank that he wasn't supposed to? Live plants? Pieces of thing?? Gravel even?

Is the "puke" solid? Do you see any worms in it? Any other symptoms?

He's not spitting any food out, he puked suddenly around 8hours after feeding him dinner. It looks EXACTLY like he's spitting it out though, but more mushy. He's a small guy so I don't think he can eat the gravel...no live plants, nothing I know of.

The only thing is that he has those white wormy things on the side of his glass that he eats sometimes....could that make him sick? I thought those white wormy things are harmless (can't really be parasites, they need a host, glass is not a host, lol?). He's not puking THEM up though, they look definitely like very soggy pellets.

His behaviour is normal...he sulked a bit when I moved him to the empty section but nothing else
