Postby johanna13 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 5:42 am

Please look that this short video to see how swollen my Betta is under his gills.
I just saw this,, and although he is lively and seams happy , its alarming how swollen he is...
Does anyone know what this is, and how I can help him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUAtKveWkhQ&feature=youtu.be

My friend, who breeds Bettas, says it looks like a case of constipation, probably caused by over feeding. Try feeding it a cooked, squished pea (skin removed) as this usually clears the blockage.
