Cool Whoa. That was unexpected o3O

I was just finishing cleaning up Pickles tank today when I noticed he had a little white spot just behind his ventral fins O.O
I know females have this, its called a egg spot, right?
Im not sure if its just a scale or whatever, but it looks pretty darn close to what Nenet has x.x
I also think Hes bloated, how long should I not feed him?

Picture please? Just cause there's many different kinds of bloating, so it could be a good or bad bloat.

You should feel him 3 pellets twice a day, SOAK THEM IN WATER BEFOREHAND! This prevents constipation. Fast him once a week is a good idea as well.

From Bettatalk:

Females have egg spots. Males usually don’t (though I’ve seen some who did). Hmmm? What is an egg spot you ask? Oh yes, more Chinese :)). OK, an egg spot (not egg roll!) is a tiny white speck, like a grain of salt, located under the female’s belly, between her ventrals and her anal fin. The spot is none other than the ovipositor tube, which the female drops during spawning, and out of which the eggs will come out (or so you hope :) ). Sometimes young males have an egg spot (just to confuse us further :P ), but usually they don’t, especially when mature.

He could have a false ovidepositor as mentioned above.

What kind of flakes do you have him on? Flakes such as Bettamin that are made for bettas are fine, but tropical fish flakes can give them bloat due to the high vegetable content that they have. I'd say fast for a day and take it from there. If it looks better, then feed a small amount that day, if not fast for another day.
