He doesn't look any different, he's just acting differently which is very typical for old fish. Believe me, I know a lot about diseases and I am almost 100% certain that this is simply age related.

Probably is. How old is he? Petstore fish I'm guessing if he's your very first bett??

He's not my first betta. Lol. He's just the one that got me so fascinated by them. He is a petstore fish and has never had health issues, and he's around two years old.

Got started on some DIY filters (will share if they work, lol.). I'm really hoping they work since they are dirt cheap (I could probably do four for 30$) and they are designed to be betta friendly. A couple of my tanks need filters, to.

My black PK is lethargic and has lost color but I've seen this coming for a while now. Those are literally his only symptoms.

Excited for my aquabid fish! Still open for a group buy though, if we find the right seller!

I'm fine. It's hitting south west Edmonton HARD (hail, buckets of rain, wind, tornado warning, insane thunder) and on the way home our bus was leaking. We have been advised to take shelter and I am heading down to the basement because this is fairly serious. I will be online, but the power could go out at any moment.

I have plans for the fish if the power goes out.
