I would get the daphnia. It will help with constipation. I've heard you can get it at Petsmart. Some people incorporate it into the fishes regular meal feeding it once or twice a week. Once you start feeding him again, you can PM me if you want and I can suggest a couple things you can do with his feeding habits. The daphnia will definitely help if he gets constipated easily.

ya, that so called fish expert manager had NO idea what i was talking about... well when i get it, do i just feed him that, or that and a half a pellet? i am so worried i am going to mess this up. I dont wont him to continue to get bloated, it has to be stressing him out so much, which is NOT good for fish contrary to popular belief.

Yeah, stressing out is definitely not a good thing. I have personally never used it but dramaqueen uses it and I'm pretty sure puts it into her fishes regular food regiment. I would ask her about it.

Yes, I feed my fish daphnia once a week. I fast them on Sundays and feed daphnia on Mondays.

I may have missed it if you answered this before but have you tried soaking the pellets before feeding? Also, do you soak the freeze dried food you're feeding him? Freeze dried food can cause digestive problems if it's not pre soaked. Sorry if you already answered these questions.

UPDATE: his bloating has once again mysteriously vanished over night! His poo looks fine. His swimming is normal! :) I have to rule out SBD, it can't be. But it looks like I have some work to do to make sure he doesn't bung up after everytime I feed him.
