Your food may be what's causing it and if it's a lower quality food like Tetra or Wardly or something that may be the problem. If that's the case get him on some nice high quality foods like Omega One, New Life Spectrum and Hikari! You could cut down on his feedings (and switch foods if necessary) and if he's still bloated try feeding him some de shelled peas.
I am currently feeding him the new life spectrum which is pretty good with fiber content but I think the aquarium place wasn't and that's what messed him up a little bit

That's often what messes up a lot of fish! Glad to see you're feeding him the good stuff and not the low quality icky bad stuff! I think he'll clear right up with just a lowered feeding rate

Those pics are just fine. You have a red tail shark and a zebra danio! The zebra danios are active schooling fish that need 20+ gallons. Now I recommend either removing the red tail or upgrading your tank size as these get fairly large and extremely aggressive. Their aggression can be diluted with big tanks and tons of plants and territory however. When young they're very deceiving on their future personalities.

Final warning. Your shark will likely kill your whole tank when it starts getting older. Do with that information as you will.

Watch out because they are great jumpers. I have one male that pretty much dominates the top of the tank when it's comes to food, if it can fit In his mouth it could possibly be food. I've seen ghost shrimp eaten whole( took a while to get it down but he did) when he was two inches, but he's very peaceful and would never attack another fish.
