Help new betta (fish) caregiver!
I got a new betta from petsmart last thursday. noticed some water cloudiness next day and some couple white spots on the head and darkness at the tip of the fin on my betta. Sunday evening I sterilized everything (boiled gravels, stones, artificial plants, shells) and changed water 100%. Used preconditioned water, Ready Water into 5 gallon tank with half dose of accompanied bio supplement, added half dose of API Slim Coat (2ml), half dose of salt (2 tsp aqua salt).
Tested water, looking good. 7.2 ph, zero ammonia, 82 degrees. tank is filtered, 5 gallon size with water monitoring tool.
my betta looks good... white spots are gone, color is ok, noticed on a little black dot on the body (around the spine, one side), though. BUT, it is inactive, hiding himself behind the rock, plants, on the shells, lying on the bottom, etc. No swim, unless the tank is shaken. Not responsive to food. Ate only one pellet (didnt see or ignored the other pallet).
what should i do??
