Read through the betta care sticky at the top of the forum...that should tell you a lot about your betta and I'm pretty sure there's help for constipation in there.

Is your Betta:
In a Tank or bowl ( if in a tank what size?)
Do you have a heater .Betta should have H2O temp 75-80 F Degrees
Do you have any type of filter?
Does he appear bloated?

By the way, do airators (or whatever they are called) actually work?

Bettas breath atmospheric air, so an aerator is certainly not necessary. In fact, bettas prefer still water, so it would probably stress him out more than anything else.
