I agree with Kim on the heaters. I'd feed the daphnia first, before trying a pea. I swear by the dapnia as I feel it's much more natural and would be found in a normal part of a betta's diet. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

OK, I'm trying it out. Daphnia are awfully tiny! Should fit good in his little mouth. lol

Now he's resting on the bottom. He's been swimming around from top to bottom so I hope he'll be ok.

He's resting on the bottom right now, which he never did during the swimbladder episode. I hope he's over this. I've been feeling a little guilty because I don't have heaters for them but I just don't have room or have $$$ for tanks with heaters. If I DID do it, it would have to be one at a time and I worry about all the electricity that stuff would use. :(
