Sounds like he is getting bloated and constipated.
I see the problem; feeding only bloodworms. That can't be a staple diet. It is like us eating donuts 24/7; good, but not healthy. You need a pellet as a staple diet, and then bloodworms as treats. He would accept the pellets eventually if that is the only thing you offer to him.
Now, to fix your problem, don't feed him for a few days (2-3). After he has been starved, give him a deshelled pea. Any fish that has not eaten in days will accept almost anything. This will open up his digestive system, and then he will "lose weight". Continue feeding a pea a day untill he is back to normal.
