okay so my female betta has recently been recovering from fin rot. she looked all fine and dandy, but then she stated turning white. so i thought she was stressed so i let her be as much as i could and she started turning her beautiful blue again. lately she has been seeming really lethargic and just, well, lying around and not really swimming. i looked at her today as i am cleaning out her tank and she seems to have a hard time breathing and she is completely in her side in the tub i put her in :( Ive had to poke her lightly with the thermometer just to make sure that she was still alive. please someone help me. i dont know what to do. i cant put her back in her tank yet because the temperatures do not match. im doing my best to keep her warm until the tank warms up. her fins are looking a little clamped. i still have medication for it from her previous case of fin rot.
