Exclamation My poor fish :(

So I got my Crownfish Betta last thursday, and ever since part of it's body is getting really big and round, kind of looks like a beer belly
It's under the little fins in the front. I feed him a few pellets twice a day,
Does anybody know what it is ????
It's not going away it gets bigger

The store said it was a male too..
I took the best picture I could

Thanks for any help

You should fast him for and couple days and treat him with epsom salt for that belly. Don't keep feeding him. Has he gone to the bathroom lately?

Welcome to the forum....have a few questions....

What size is the tank, how much and how often are the water changes, water temp, filter, live plants, additives used, what kind of food are you feeding....

As c4 has posted-fast him for a few days and watch to see if he poops and if he doesn't improve or he start to have any other behavior changes I would start an Epsom salt treatment...but fast him first and answer the question so we can help your fella out.....

Lovely Betta too by the way....is this your only one....
