I think this buddy is about 6 weeks old or so. His name is Hyperion. I read somewhere that you were supposed to feed babies more frequently and I think I went a little overboard.
I recently had a betta die of constipation and swim bladder disease (and by recent I mean yesterday), so I'm a little concerned about this guy. Does it look like he has an extreme amount of bloating that could possibly be dangerous? Or is it something a day or two of fasting can't fix?
