You should probably stop feeding him peas, those are mainly for goldfish who only eat plants.
Bettas are insectivores so they cant digest peas and can make bloating worse.

Some members have been able to use them with success and they can work sometimes, but if your guys is still bloated, its not helping him out right now and could be making the problem worse.



How much do you feed him per day, and what do you feed him? Crowntails are more susceptible to bloat since their bodies are more streamlined so its really easy to over feed them.

Try fasting him for a few days and seeing if that helps.

Somehow i don't see that he is bloated. Is he still active and eating? What do you mean he getting worse? Can he swim straight or he swims on a side? Is there any other symptoms?

You say that you gave him Epsom salt. Sometimes bloating can mean that they have internal parasites. Then the poop will be white and stringy.

Give us more details.

Also if he was just bloated and no other symptoms then Epsom salt will help. But very important the right dosage and duration of the treatment .

If he just bloated and can't swim straight then he probably have swim bladder problems

So sorry for previous post i was reading the post about water conditioner and somehow cut and paste it,so sorry
