a lump on my betta?

after a water change on King Dedede, I saw some kind of lump when I went to check on him, he doesn't seem to be going up or anything.

in this photo, if you look closely where I circled, you can see white scales and a lump, the lump is bigger than in the photo.

:\ That's really bad care. BUT since you learned your lesson on a different thread, I don't have to explain unless you want me to. A lump? Like... On his stomach?

That lump is just bloatedness, nothing to worry about, he is probably constipated, I would not feed him for a day or 2, but that is normal to have.

The lethargy is definitely from not havign a heater, tetra or some brand like that makes one for 15 dollars, but its pretty bad quality, its hard to heat a 1 gallon. The good quality heaters won't fit. You will probably have to replace that one yearly. It is about 4 inches long and has no heat dial, it just chooses an automatic temperature, but it is good for new betta owners I guess. A petco employee would know what I mean.
