Flame is sick :(

Flame has not been doing well. The first two days he seemed fine, but not he is just lying on the bottom and barely eating. I moved him into a smaller tank and added a little aquarium salt, but what else can I do?

Please help. He looks so thin and its bothering me that he may be dying. I hope there is something I can do!

Bettas can go several weeks without food. Just keep offering it to him, and remove any he doesn't eat. Sometimes bettas need a few weeks to get comfortable, or maybe he's just a mellow fish who was excited to see his new home. I would just keep a close eye on him. Good luck!
