Hi, I read this forum so that I can better care for my Betta named Leaky Buckets. I got him from Walmart about a month ago, he was in a leaking plastic container and wasnt in good shape. I took him home and have been giving him the best care I know how, thanks to this great site!
Anyway, he lives in a 10 gallon tank, w/ a heater and filter. I change his water once a week. So far he's been doing really well...eating, being active, curious, etc. Lately his face has been getting gray. It has always been gray, but today I think it looks worse! I fed him this morning and he was fine but tonight I gave him a few bloodworms and he didnt seem interested in eating them. Eventually, about 15 mins later, he ate them. He's just been swimming around randomly in his tank...but he doesnt seem to be his regular self.
I've been treating his water w/ Aquarisol from time to time and I once added a tablespoon of aquarium salt to his water as a preventative. His fins look in good shape, its just his face that worries me. Please help me take care of this problem, if it is a problem, before anything happens to him.
