Bloated Guppy?

Hello, I recently inherited an aquarium and all seem to be doing well. This one guppy however is extremely bloated. I think it is a male and itís been this way for several months and is still eating and swimming around okay but I didnít know if I should be worried? Any ideas on whatís going on with this little one? Anything I should do for it?

The most common easy remedy to try would be fasting the fish and then feeding cooked peas, as in the center parts inside the round pea shell. You can try canned no salt preferred, or cook frozen or fresh ones. It really doesn't take much but the peas cause a laxative effect and help them poop well. And sometimes bloating disappears.
