Constipated fish often develop floating problems, which in turn can lead to things like sores from being exposed to open air or rubbing against the bottom, so the quicker you can take care of it the better. In terms of if it is left untreated, I guess it depends on how bad the problem is. If the gut is actually impacted, without fasting and/or peas it could be a very serious problem.

Chrissy is right. A 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon of epsom salt per 10g often helps as well to purge out the excess foods clogging the GI tract of your fish. Shrimps can also be used as an alternative to peas.
