So Norton is looking a little "bloated". I don't know what it's from and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas. He has been hanging around the bottom of his tank more often. He hasn't had any issues swimming, and he still eats his food. I did reduce his food since I noticed his 'bloating', thinking that bloat really might be the issues. I've attached pictures and filled out the "sick betta form" lol Sorry the pictures aren't too good, I was just trying to give everyone an idea of the affected area and what it looks like.
