So, I bought some shrimp yesterday. 2 Amanos and several ghosties. The amanos and about half of the ghosties went in with Sonas. Well... this morning I woke up to a VERY fat betta. He must have been chowing down on shrimp all night. And I'm pretty sure he ate both the amanos.
Right now he's in a 3 gallon quarantine tank with 1tsp of epsom salt. I've been giving him a mirror occasionally, as I've heard that can help them pass their food quicker. His poop is NOT white and stringy, so I know its not a sudden case of internal parasites. He's not pineconing, so I also know its not dropsy.
Reason why I'm posting is I'm wondering if there are any other suggestions on how to get his fat tummy down, and if he'd ever be ok to put back in a tank with shrimp. I'm starting to think no, because he's gotten a lot more aggressive over the past month or so, and after he ate his first shrimp, I think he's gotten a taste for them now.
Apologies for the blurry pics, the tank walls were a little spotty, and I didn't bother wiping them down.
