Large betta poop?

I was cleaning out Buddha's tank and I was finding these large brown things. At first I thought they were snails and I began INSTANTLY freaking out. But upon closer inspection, I noticed it was fish poop. But as you can see, it's extremely large. Is this normal and can it be a sign of something?



And here's Buddha in his temporary tupperware. He doesn't look very happy :(

I really dont have any idea I am sure someone will come along that does. The thing that worries me is a hardy ever see any poop from Perseus and clean the gravel very well and stir it up and everything. Whats up with that ? Does the filter get it, is he maybe eating it I have read so will do that. Anyway I dont think you have anything to really worry about but lets wait for others to have a look. Poor Buddha blows a kiss to him.

Well, you got a good filter then. And Buddha says thanks :)

I've been feeding him flakes, but not that much. Especially since he was bloated before so I lowered his feeding amounts.

Buddha never has, which is what confused me. He always had small poop :3
