I've been told that you shouldn't feed them a pea, as that can cause more problems with their digestive system than it fixes. I'm not sure what it is, but maybe constipation or parasites. Hopefully someone with more experience will answer soon.

Did you say you don't add anything to your water? What about water conditioner?

Sorry that doesnt sound like water conditioner unless its different there from what we have here in the U.S. He does look bloated so dont feed him for a couple of days and see if the bloating goes down. Good luck I hope he will be okay please keep us updated how he is doing and ask more questions if you need more help.
