    Hello,

    I just got Jasper a couple weeks ago, and he has looked like this since I got him. I have fasted him for a couple days but it didn't look like a constipation bump so I stopped doing that. He eats 4 pellets a day (2 in the morning 2 at night) and gets an occasional frozen blood worms. He I in 5 gallon tank with heat and filter. When I first searched it I read an article saying that a small bump like this was normal, so I didn't worry to much since he is very active and seems to swim all of his tank with ease, but I just want to double check. If I need to get him medicine I want to do it asap. Maybe I'm just paranoid but I want him to have a healthy long life.

    Thanks,

    Ang

    he looks just fine to me, but then again i'm in no way an expert, and i've only had a little bit of proper experience with bettas.

    What bump are you talking about? I don't see anything abnormal about him, perhaps I'm missing what you are looking at. Point out the location or try describing it to me.
