Bad week in Fishkeeping

Okay to start of I had a huge plague in the discus tank but all my discus are greatly alive! Aggression got overhand in the cichlid tank and now my betta I'm trying to breed looks like he swallowed a marble! I have him In a breeder with the female in a container floating on top, I feed him lots of freeze dried/frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp. I do waterchanges more than weekly so I'm convinced its not a internal parasite. The betta is In a ten gallon filtered and heated. I will be gone for a couple days so I won't be able to treat him. Could not be getting food help the issue

Thanks

Your betta is probably constipated. Bloodworms have a hard exoskeleton that is hard to digest. A couple days without feeding will help him. Try to feed peas or some greens. Even vegi flakes will help.
