They can't actually digest peas (I think), so basically it just goes through their digestive system. . . I think it's also bad for Bettas to be fed peas, a lot of people do it when they're bloated/constipated, I think it causes some internal damage?

I'm not sure. .______.; Read it somewhere on these forums before, people don't recommend feeding your Bettas peas if they're bloated, just use Epsom Salt instead.

It's a personal choice to feed peas or not. There are much better options in my opinion, such as daphnia (or brine shrimp, or epsom salts as Micho suggested.
You can also fast for one day a week, since prevention is the best option in the first place!

Actually I fed them with peas beacause the shrimps love it and also because I read it is "digestive for bettas", but the main reason was for the shrimps so they donīt have a specific food.

So there is no problem, I wonīt use again the peas. :)

But then, donīt I feed the shrimps? only with algae and rest of food would it be enough?

Thanks for your answers.

Shrimps they basically eat anything they can their hands on, algae wafers, leftover food that your other fish has left, even bloodworms. You can feed them anything you want to be honest, just make sure that they're getting enough food.

I would not put in extra food in the tank just for the shrimp. They will find something whether it is fish poo, bacteria, or uneaten food-they will find it. Also bettas are carnivores. You have to expect them to eat shrimp, it's what they do!
