Help, my crown tail looks bloated!

I recently purchased a beautiful red crowntail. He always seemed to be a bit slow moving. After moving him to a community tank, I noticed he spends a lot of time in the upper corner, rather than exploring. Recently I noticed that his stomach looks disproportionately big. His scales appear normal. I am uploading a photo. Any help that can be provided would be appreciated!

Fast him for a day or two and see if it helps. If not you may want to quarantine him in a tank with epsom salt.

I did notice that when I fed my fish this morning he was trying to eat everything. Will my five tetras, dwarf frog and three cory cats be ok on the fast too?

Cup him during feeding while he's fasting. If he's such a pig he may always need to be separated during feeding.
