Hi - how long has it been bloated for - does it change size?

I ask because my Clown Loaches look very bloated for a few hours after being fed but their stomachs gradually reduce back down to "normal size". Im not sure if this is normal for these kind of Loaches (the Yoyo and the Clown are close relations).

Try feeding it a squished pea. This will help if it is constipated but I fear there may be something worse going on and have no advice to offer on how to fix it :(
