Ryu was deffinately a year or older when I rescued him from the crappy store he was in...fell in love with the bugger at first glance. I've had him now for sometime. In the last few months he's started to show signs of aging: no more highjinks, sleeping on his leaf hamock almost all day, less agressin towards food, ignoring the cories, dulling color, bearding, increased marbling, and lately his fins are starting to look leass than splended.
I know I might not have much more time with him... Doea anyone have any tips for caring for an aging betta? I'm trying to keep the water conditions ideal and the stress low. I just don't know what else to do and my research hasn't turned up anything on the subject. Any help would reassuring.
