Hi everyone. Over the last week or two my betta has been feeling sick. His appetite has decreased drastically and he's become very lethargic. He also started wedging himself between the heater and the filter. I moved them apart so he couldn't anymore. He wasn't getting sucked into the filter because I suspected that and turned it off and he still went in there. Since I moved the filter to the other side of the tank, he still insisted on squeezing between the heater and the wall. He grew kind of a pot belly that started turning silver. He already had a bit of what I thought was fin and tail rot. Last night his body kind of looked like it had changed shape.. His tail was a lot higher than his head. Kind of the shape of a high heeled shoe! When I checked on him today he was dead:(. Here's a picture of him when I found him. You can't really tell in the pic but the brown part almost looks like he's covered in dust or mud or something. He wasnt this colour last night! Like I said, his stomach was kind of silver but the rest of him was still blue other than a little black around the edges of his tail and fins. The ammonia and nitrites were a little high but nothing crazy. I can get exact measurements if that would help is jut have to find them. The water has been consistent at 82 degrees. Does anyone know what might have happened to him?:(
Thanks for your help.
