If your Betta has swimmer's bladder lying on it's side or on the bottom of the tank feed him some live brian shrimp for a week it should do the trick.

There are a few different illnesses that can cause this symptom - a common one is SBD and usually you will want to use Epsom salt (proper dosage and water changes) to correct it. Daphnia will help keep them from becoming constipated, but constipation won't cause that particular symptom. There is a sticky int he Disease section of the forums that will help with appropriate treatments for different symptoms..

Brine shrimp won't make a difference.. daphnia is pretty much a natural food to help keep them "regular" :)
