A betta's anus is a lot higher up on their undersides than you'd expect; it's sort of located on the betta's "chest." You can use just a regular frozen pea. Just thaw it in a little bit of water from the tank and squish it between your fingers. Feed the fish a little bit of the mush (not the shell, though). Peas help bettas (and many other fish) with their digestion and are useful for clearing up constipation and are also just a good supplement to their diets.
