R.I.P. my first fish

I just lost the first fish I ever had, a White Cloud minnow. Two days ago he was perfectly fine, and I guess I over-fed him, 'cuz his stomach burst. But what confuses me is he never ate that much, I always gave him two somewhat big flakes. he normally only ate a quarter of one flake. But anyway, he survived through two amonia spikes,was the first fish I got, he lost all of his tank mates, leaving him alone in his four gallon. I just flushed him this morning, he was laying on the bottom last night, I didn't even bother feeding him, he wasn't going to move. when I woke up, he was dead.
African ciochlids FTW!!!

sorry for the loss. i dont think overfeeding a WCM on flakes can cause a stomach to burst, although there are other possible causes, though.
