Can bettas eat to much?

So I fed my tank and all it's inhabitants bloodworms last night. (there's 3 cory cats, 2 black and 2 white skirt tetras, a rubber lip pleco, and 3 neon tetras) Anyway ALex my betta was very protective of the food, he would flare and cover the bloodwarms with his fins after everyone was full and calmed down I noticed everyone had a rather large tummy but Alexander had the biggest. It was so large, like overly bulging. I'm just wondering if they can eat to much?

Yes, they can definitely be overfed and this will cause bloating and constipation. I would remove the betta when you feed the others. Then when mealtime is over, put him back in the tank.
