Pea - raw instead of cooked??

My betta is a little bloated, so I fed him 1/2 a pea (maybe a little less). It was frozen and I thawed it in water I scooped out of his tank. I shelled it, broke it into bits and let him eat it. Now I'm worried because I didn't cook it.

Is raw pea going to make him worse? Anyone fed raw pea instead of cooked before? How did it go?

Since bettas are carnivores, peas aren't recommended for bloat. Fasting is usually they way to go.

That's the first time I've heard that peas are not good to help clear a constipated betta.

I have never tried it myself before, but my guy is having trouble sinking and is pretty uncomfortable so I was hoping to help him out.

Either way, I'm trying to figure out if the raw pea is going to be a problem vs a cooked one. Anyone tried feeding a raw pea?

The pea shouldn't hurt him. I've used the pea method on my oscars, but not on bettas.
