I *think* my Betta, Dragonfly, might be constipated... I haven't seen him go at all since I moved him into his 5 Gal tank. Nor have I noticed any at the bottom of his tank, and he is eating normal! I feed him 2 pellets, two times a day and usually fast him 1 day during the week.
I have also notice that he has ripped fins, as well as he isn't really flaring out his tail like he was before. I have already got help for the ripped fins.
