I know there's probably a thread for this already but I'm gonna make a new one anyway.
My female betta has had swim bladder disease for almost a week now. I stopped feeding her on Friday when I noticed it, then on Monday I fed her again (less than usual) but later on that day she was back to (barely) swimming on her side and having a bloated tummy. I haven't fed her since then, and she was just fine until this afternoon and now she's bloated and on her side again.
It just keeps coming back. I've changed her water several times, lowered the water level, moved her tank away from the other bettas tanks, put some salt in her water, and just today attempted to feed her peas (didn't work, but I tried). The only heater I have is a room heater but that doesn't work very well and I can't afford a aquarium heater right now.
I'm at my wits end, what should I do?
