Betta bloat

My seems to look a little not much bloated. Tomorrow is her no food day followed by her pea. Will she be OK until tomorrow. She is done for the day on eating. I give her only small amounts of pellets but she likes to nibble on the snails squash which I put in at night so he eats when the lights out then I take it out the next day. I don't feed her freeze dried worms because I read it gives them no nutrition value and will bloat them. I need advise I am confused and worried for her.

Fasting will help. I have found that frozen daphnia, available at most LFS, is better than peas. It works as a laxative and the bettas seem to love eating it.

My betta also eats my snail's zucchini. I have seen him poop pure zucchini!

Try not to worry about your little guy just yet. Sounds like you are on the right track.
