I am not an expert. but! I've been googling betta illnesses for about 2 days now to try to find out what mine is suffering from. I found that with a constipated betta you should take a frozen pea, defrost it, and cut it into tiny pieces and then feed the betta a piece.

Fasting works just fine. A fish can do well without food for a week or two.

After fasting, try feeding some daphnia.

If he's constipated don't feed him, however, if you just got him it may take a few days to get his appetite going.
