I've been checking his tummy and it's a slightly rounded shape. Does that count as bloating? I'm just a little paranoid because it's been a few days and I haven't seen his poopies. He's usually very proud of his poops and displays it at the front of the tank.

Slightly rounded seems normal, I would just keep and close eye on him and maybe not feed for a day and keep checking for his poopies.

Try flaring him with a mirror. It can sometimes encourage defecation.

You should make it a regular practice in any case.

It's a little less rounded than in the picture. I fasted him for a day anyway just in case. I'm also guilty of overfeeding sometimes...he always looks so heart broken when I start backing away with the food

I feed my boys 6 days out of the week and then I fast them once a week. Sometimes, if I feel that their tummies are a bit rounder than normal, then I fast 2 days out of the week.
