I thought he was going to DIE!

Do you know what happened last night? Lebron looked like he almost DIED. He was all gasping for breath, lethargic, doesn't react to movements, and all that. I was just getting ready for bed. I was saying good night to him. When I woke up ---> But TODAY, he's all active, happy, alert, flares, eats like a pig, etc.
Like he's a WHOLE different fish. :) I'm thinking that he tried to go to sleep but he was at the bottom of the tank. What do you think happened? I'm hopefully getting a test kit soon. I really want to know what happened!

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

If I catch Junior while he's sleeping (he sleeps on plants), he'll usually be pretty unresponsive to movements and hover around like a zombie betta. haha Maybe Lebron was just in a deep slumber!

Oh I'm glad hes okay! It would be horrible if such a pretty betta passed away!

Honeycomb sleeps at the bottom of the tank all the time, sometimes in/on his plants and is usually unresponsive to movements, unless i turn on the lights in the room, but he is still pretty sleepy-acting. You can tell if he's sleeping by looking at his eyes, Honeycomb's usually seem darker, and "bottomless", unlike when he is awake.

Honeycomb almost always lays on the gravel :) when he sleeps, that is XD

Glad everyone's okay!

Probably "chipmunking"

Ate too much & felt like a fat betta, so needed to let his body process the food.

Akoya does that all the time when he eats. Going to give him 50 mosquitos since he got beat up today.

Yeah, he's better now. :) I would be PRETTY depressed if he died. I'd like him to be around when I start breeding. Some... Inspiration. <3

Yep. He was just in the middle of his barrel and the outside of the barrel. He never really, sleeps in the plants. ^^" I'm glad that he's not the only Betta like that. He said thanks for the compliment BTW. :3

Isn't that too much? (O.0) I feed him 2 pellets 2x a day. But when it's time for variety, it's different. That was just a day of pellets. He usually spends his time at the bottom and middle when I'm not around. Oh, well...

Lol.

Again, thank you everyone for being concerned. :) I never knew Lebron was so well known here, lol. He's all better now and all that. Thanks and I hope your Bettas won't be like this, I don't want some of you to kinda panic on what's wrong. Lol
