The only thing different in him (pics tomorrow afternoon as it is late) is that he ate a WHOLE bunch of an algee wafer a couple days ago and was fairly bloated - the bloat went down and he has been removed from that tank so that he does not eat more of it.

My fish too has eaten an algae wafer and become incredibly bloated. I fasted him, and he was fine. : ) Since then, I've fed algae-eating things outside of the main tank, or taken my betta out while the aglae-eaters eat.
