Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Severely bloated belly and it looks like he's getting bigger...

When did you start noticing the symptoms? Started half a week ago.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Read to try giving him a little bit of pea. He only ate a tiny bit the first attempt.

How old is your fish (approximately)? Maybe a year.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? No, he swims around like normal.
I think he's getting more bloated. I have a 1 gallon currently set up in case his condition changes. I gravel vacced his tank twice this week, but don't believe I saw any poo.
I think it might be constipation, but I have no clue. Would it hurt to try treating him for it anyway?
