So yesterday I noticed he was bloated so I didnt feed him last night. His behavior hasn't changed at all still moving around really fast, loves to hide behind plants, the filter, and heater, he even comes up looking for food when I open the hatch. I fed him a pellet to see if he still eats and he did. I'm not sure if this is anything I should be worrying about, or will it go away if I stop feeding him for a day or 2.
Here are some pictures. Its kind of hard to get a picture of him because he's always moving around so fast and when hes not moving he's hiding behind things.
