Bloated Betta

:( I have had a male betta for 2 and a half years. I noticed he is not moving very much anymore and when I changed his bowl he looks bloated. I am afraid he is in trouble. Can anyone help?

Boil some frozen peas and feed them to him. Don't feed anything but peas for a couple days to see if it helps.

Boil them for about 30 second, peel them and the smush them small enough for him to eat. Make sure to keep his water very clean if he is in a small tank by himself. Also make sure to keep some water ready for water changes that is at the same temp and dechlorinated. If he is in with other fish, feed the whole tank nothing but peas for a couple days.

Yep! F4As suggestion is exactly what I would have said - get the green peas out!
