hrm there were sayings of people saying a pea was actually bad for them and that epsom salts would be better.
But if peas are beneficial then simply poke it on a chopstick and have him nip at it. That is what I did with my bettas when their food sank faster than they could realize it was there.
However swim bladder issues tend to go hand in hand with constipation or overfeeding, have you been feeding your betta too much lately?
It helps to raise the temp to around 80 F as well. Keep us posted and gl!
