OK... its def constipation/SBD

After doing some more reading and watching Paul I have concluded that he has to have SBD and some level of constipation. I have read on numerous sites about the pea feeding thing but have also been told that that is horrible for the fishes digestive track. I have some daphnia but he does not seem interested in it at all. I read on one sight about epson salt baths? Putting the betta in a salt bath for 15 minutes to try to loosen him up? Does anyone have experience with this?

Paul hasnt eaten anything other than a bite of some daphinia in the passed 48 hours. His color does seem to be fading and he is remaining on the bottom of the tank for the most part. I currently have a betta cup suspended in his tank and he is in that so that the air isnt so far from him.

Any other tips?
