Exclamation HELP! betta possibly bloated!

I went camping this weekend and when i came back, she was acting lethargic and laying on her side. her belly is slightly swolen. my dad was supposed to feed my fish when i was gone and i think he overfed her. what should i do?

I would fast her until you see her poo or until the bloating goes down. You could feed her a couple of frozen brine shrimp or daphnia to give her some extra fiber--but I wouldn't feed her more than that until the bloating goes down. Warm temperatures will speed the process along--so if you have an adjustable heater you could slowly raise the temperature to 82 degrees over the course of a couple days.
