48 is bloated Help Us

My beta (named 48 for Nascars Jimmie Johnsons team) is very bloated and I do not know what to do. I have had Betas before and never experienced this with one. Can anything be done to help 48?

take 1 green pea just microwave it for about 15 seconds. Split it open drop on half of the pea in the water. If he eats it there will be plenty of fiber and your betta should start to unblote

and dont worry if he wont eat it the first time. you could give him peas in different ways. you could cook 'em, defrost them in water, dry them out, mash them, or cut it up in tiny bite size peices. mine likes to eat peas off the end of a toothpick. all depends on the fish's taste.

keep feeding him peas at normal meal times until bloat goes down
and you'll probly find lost of green poo at in your tank

48 & green pea

Thank you!!!!! I called my mom and 48 is getting the pea now. She is going to watch him to make sure he eats some. Should we give him any more or just once?

Gotta watch out for the canned ones, sometimes there's salt in there.

If he won't take it right away don't try feeding anything else to him, eventually he will get hungry enough.

48 & green pea

I fed 48 gr peas over the weekend. Seems to be eating them ok. I will try some frozen this evening as there is still no poo.
