Yes, he'll start pooping. Just check time to time if his tummy is getting smaller.. And please post if his poo is white or stringy, that's a sign of internal parasites.

If you want to... If he's still bloated, keep on feeding daphnia "pellets". You'll need metro-blahblah to cure internal parasites.. Jungle's Anti-Parasite Fizz Tabs have the Metro thing and all you have to do is to make it a liquid and dip your Betta pellets in and feed.. Oh, and if your Betta doesn't eat.. You just get garlic juice and dip the medicated food into it. It enhances the smell and taste.. Yum..

Sounds complicated, let's just hope the daphnia does it, I think the epsom salts really have made a difference in his behavior though, over the weekend he wasn't really active at all but he's back to his normal energetic self, but he's still just bloated

Yeah, good luck! :] And Epsom Salt will help internal parasites, too. Are you sure he's that bloated? The pictures you posted show any "fatness". Lol

Yeah it was kind of hard because he looks straight at the camera or hides behind his plant whenever I try taking pictures, but there's a bulge let me try to get another picture of him

Here's some kind of better pictures of him

Here's him sticking his head out from behind the filter, you can kind of see his stomach

He doesn't look bloated to me... He seems to be perfectly fine. :D Unless it looks bigger than in the picture.. Just to make sure, feed him the daphnia and wait.
