Egg Bound
Symptoms : swollen abdomen on a female. Cannot swim well form the mass of eggs in her belly. 
Info : The female is over-full of eggs and for some reason cannot release them. 
Treatments : Remove her from the view of all other bettas. Do not feed her for 2-3 days and keep her bowl covered with minimal light. Keeping her in a warm place also helps. 
  You can also carefully remove her form her bowl with a damp paper towel coated in Stress Coat and gently rub her ovipositor with a wet Q-tip to encourage the release of the eggs.
Prevention : I really don't know, I am not sure what the exact cause is.
