I personally have not fed mine a pea, but I do know how to prepare one for a fish... It's supposed to be blanched, not cooked. Any frozen peas you would normally buy at a store have been appropriately blanched (otherwise they wouldn't be safe for even you to eat). Simply thaw a frozen pea and remove its skin. A piece of the inside, no more than a quarter, should be enough. A good judge is to make it about the same size as your fish's eye. Also, don't feed him any other food the day you give him the pea. Hope that helps!

Good luck! Let me know how that works, the pea is simply fibre which helps to clean and strengthen his digestion. Try it after fasting for 2 days perhaps instead of right away? Note, fibre won't be absorbed nutritionally, so fast a day then a pea might work well too, because otherwise its like fasting for 3.
