Doesn't look sick to me. Let him bounce back from just recovering from ick. Sometimes they just need that med-and-stress-free time to feel 100% again.

I have owned bettas since I was about 13/14, and have started breeding since I was 17 with minimal luck (culling a spawn due to an unseen genetic disease that hit the father, ex stranding me away from home, etc -what luck-), and now (19 years old) have had a successful spawn of over 200, plus have everything lined up for the fry ;)

I have learned so much on here from so many members... OldFishLady, Myates, Mr. Vampire, Indjo, etc (too many names to mention xD)

I actually came here from Yahoo Answers due to an awesome member on this forum (Anhel) and so far it has been 100% better than Y.A. Here we try our hardest not to judge, and we work with what you have while still giving tips and tricks to have your betta live his/her longest and healthiest life possible while keeping it simple and easy for you!

oh 200+ thats good..... Im 17 now n got my 1st betta as a gift (actually the gift was for my sister) but im taking care of it... And what you said about this place is true because I read stuff and realised I could give my betta a better life with my limited means because I don't have the place to keep a huge aquarium so I'm raising it in a bowl and here in india heaters are available for only 10gallon tanks and also I read that bowl heaters aren't advised as they could cook my fish so do you have any suggestions on how to do without a heater as winter is setting in here

It looks like he's in a vase. Does he have a heater?

Well, are those heaters at all adjustable? What are the wattages on those heaters?

Are you unable to get a larger tank due to space, or money? Are you able to find perhaps a 5 gallon (if the heaters are adjustable, or may work for 5-10 gallons that would be the best bet).

What is the temperature like usually in India? We'll find something that works for you :)

Hmm ok :) Since the heaters are adjustable, depending on the wattage it can still work for smaller tanks (to a point).

50watt usually works for 5+ gallons as long as you have a thermometer.
