My betta was fine Friday. Came home Sunday and he is hiding lethargic and has this red bulge coming out. What could it be? Someone told me prolapse Anus and it's worms and to use levisome? He ate Friday when I fed him. Lives in a planted community tank. He was out of water for 20 sec tops to take these photos. Hard to get a photo in the tank

Prolapse can be caused by a number of things the most common is staining due to constipation have you noticed any signs of  parasites white stringy poop flashing weight loss rapid breathing hanging near the surface

No. None of those. Maybe rapid breathing on one of my corydoras. I'll keep an eye out. Thanks

Tips on betta constipation? I feel my last 3 bettas have been constipated.  I give them pellets and flakes and he sometimes eats the carnivorous pellets I give my bottom dwellers

It could be the higher protein carnivore pellets that are causing the constipation you could feed the Cory's once you turn the light off in the evening or before you put the light on in the morning  to provent him from taking their food
