Constipation?

Does my betta have constipation? The stomach is a little fat and it doesn't poop.

If you haven't seen him poop in a while and he's bloated I would assume constipation. How much do you feed him, what do you feed him, and how often?

For a treatment you can do a 2tsp per gallon solution with unscented epsom salt for a few days. Generally the bloat goes away instantly if its not internal parasite.
