Here is an excellent article about bloated fish: http://www.oscarfish.com/article-home/healthdisease/119-fish-bloat.html

Be aware of dropsy/bloat disease. This is an infection in which the scales will be pushed out (usually not so clearly as with this fish, but it demonstrates it very well):


This is a bacterial infection and needs to be treated very fast or your fish won't survive.

If it is just constipation peas and epsom salt will work like a charm.
