Not eating

My betta fish is not eating. Not even the bloodworms that he normally sucks up quickly. What could be the cause? How long does a betta fish live? When I got him he was fairly large.

Sometimes they don't eat if they are constipated. Does he look bloated at all? Any symptoms?

A healthy betta can go a couple weeks without eating so I wouldn't worry too much- if he has the bloat and a stummy ache he could be fasting himself to self medicate. If he still doesn't eat in a day or three I'd try tempting him with some kind of shrimp food.
