Man what is it now?

For the past 3 weeks or so, my 1 year old female betta has a very round stomache. I don't think it's dropsy because her scales don't look like they are popping out. She is eating and is not pregnant, but tends to go on the bottom of the tank a lot. Someone said that it could be a tumor... but I don't know how to treat it.. :(

I took a picture of her in 3 different angles. She's obviously knows I'm taking pictures of her..

The betta lives in a 5 gallon tank and lives.

It looks internal...which makes me think trying a warm 80F epsom salt bath might help...but if its is a tumor, perhaps you should wait for someone more experienced in that o.o

Hope you find out what's wrong and she'll be okay.

More info is needed please:

At least on those photos, I'm not seeing any round belly so much as a curved back..
