Not sure what's wrong with him, this is my first betta. I think I messed up, I put him in a 10gal tank with a little fake tree with plastic leaves and a little hiding place for him under the tree. I feed him once a day with 4-5 pellets of the Aqueon Betta Food(Seems like fish poison to me) but I looked at him and realized he's not as colorful as he used to be. In the tank I can kind of see some of his scales floating around. I'm guessing it's because I don't provide him with a heater, water chemicals, the fish poison I feed him, or just me being stupid. Posted some pics hopefully you guys can help me keep him alive. #SaveIvo
