So I read that if your betta is getting fat it shows under their face. So I took some pictures to see if anyone could tell me if the little guy need to go on a diet. I started feeding him just one in the morning and one at night just in case. Thanks for your time
Yeah, it looks like he's getting a little pudge there. :D
How much do you feed him, though?
It could be just how his stomach is. I only give Jade 3 pellets a day, but his stomach goes FLOOF and then an hour later he's back to his skinnyish little crazy self.
It could be that you're feeding him too much, too. Which is why ^above question was asked.

Reason: Misspellings yaaay
There really isn't a problem with feeding him multiple times a day. It just has to be small amounts. Like if you feed pellets, like one pellet 5 times a day is much better than 5 pellets once a day. If you have been overfeeding him, reduce him not in the number of times you feed him per day, but instead by the amount.
If this is a recent development (in the last 48 hours or so) then he might be bloated. Fasting him, or feeding frozen daphnia in addition to epsom salts would help. Fasting him 1 or 2 days a week will also help.
