In addition, he was actually my granddaughter's, but she bought it with hmmm..me, and her parents said uh NO! So, whenever she comes over she wants to see her LuckyBlue... she named him before we left the store...
He isn't sick otherwise... although I don't think he enjoys swimming much.. so he usually sits in one or two different spots unless I come up.
He was so beautiful..... Did you look at the beginning at his picture?
He is having a hard time swimming with clamped fins. My betta was also just laying on the bottom and only going up for air, until I put a plastic plant which goes all the way to the surface, then, he was laying on a leaf of the fake plant and just kinda lifting his head up for air. Like he avoided swimming. Don't know why the picture didn't come through, here it is again:
I think this picture is a perfect example of clamped fins. This is my first fish ever and I cured it's clamped fish in 10 days. I don't know how hard it actually is, I might have just been lucky. I also heard that this may happen from depression. I had my female in a jar next to him all the time (she is completely healthy). Maybe you should try the Aloe Gel I mentioned before as it will relax the fish. Hope I helped!
