That happens with my female sometimes. It usually goes away as soon as she poos (she's a pooping machine, so it doesn't stay very long at all).

Yup, a slightly roundish looking belly right after feeding is generally fairly normal and nothing to worry about. He should poo in a few hours and it should go away. ;)

Oh, for sure :). It also looks like he bit a big chunk out of his tail at some point last night or this morning before I fed him. You think he ate it?

Most likely. I always assume, since I don't find pieces of fin all around he tank, that my boys eat their fins when they bite. xD

Well that probably solves my case of the extra-full belly then ;)
