LOL he might not be, some fish just look a little fat like that but if you dont notice him pooping, try some blanched deshelled peas or some epsom salt, maybe a teaspoon?? not sure really... its usually a tablespoon per 5g (or 19l). id just wait to see if he poops though. i wouldnt feed more than every other day to help prevent that though.
