Well, how long has it been since he last ate? Sometimes their bellies bulge when they've just eaten a lot - at least, my betta's does. It goes away overnight, though, after he poops.

It could be that he's constipated. Daphnia helps with constipation. You can also fast him for a couple days until the bump comes down.

Ehh, you should really stop feeding until it really goes down. I'm talking, don't feed for one or two days. Even three days. He'll survive for sure, don't worry about starvation.

How much is a "bunch"? A "bunch" already sounds like too much.

Yeah, bettas stomachs are the size of their eye so you have to be very careful how much you feed them.

It should take only 2 to 3 days. Just watch his stomach to make sure it's going down.
