Eggtart, can you see the pea?

If so, then you will have to grab it with a pair of tweezers.

Do this gently. Grab the fish gently with your non writing hand, (have the tweezers in your writing hand). Gently raise the fish to the surface but keep him over the water of the tank or bucket. Once he reaches just above the surface he'll open his mouth really wide, at that point quickly but gently grab the pea with the tweezers and gently pull it out.

(can't say gently enough.....).

Seriously he should be ok if you can do this. It can be nerve racking but it is ok, you can do it.

2 inches isn't as small as I was thinking. Hopefully you can find a pair of tweezers that will work.

Good luck getting it out of there, I hope he'll be ok afterwards.
