Did my betta eat the algae wafer?

So today is fasting day, and before I went to work I realized I had forgotten to feed my snail yesterday so I stuck half an algae wafer in there.

When I got home from work, the snail was in the same spot.. but my betta was EXTREMELY bloated and most of the wafer gone! D: what do I do?

Edit, ok now I'm freaking out... my OTHER betta is bloated as well! I didn't put a wafer in there, and haven't fed him either! D:!? I did do a water change before I left... could that have something to do with it?

*tests water*

Everything is fine... but my bettas are bloated....

Yes your one Betta would've munch on the wafer. As for the other, can't answer that one if he wasn't fed anything. Can you post a pic?

nvm @second betta, I compared it to a picture the day I first got him and that's just the way he looks... Lol >.>


As for the first betta... what should I do about the bloating? Will it just go away on it's own?

Yes it will. All of my Bettas eat the wafers & veggies, especially my female Bettas, sometimes I think they'll explode. You can drop the wafer after lights out right before you go to bed.
