Hello, I haven't been here in a while but I wanted to consult the community about my betta Raphael.
I have had him since Aug 13/08 and he's always been very active and lovable, well lovable for a betta.
Just recently he's been acting strange, like he's having trouble swimming, if he stays still to long its like he gets tired and sinks. He's also been laying on his side a bit which is unusual. When he swim around its slow and jerky. Its giving his trouble during feeding because it's like he's to lazy to stay at the top of the tank. Also on a side note he has this strange white spot at the base of his top fin but it has been there almost the entire time I've had him and it was never a problem. I'm worried.
I have him in a 10 Gal tank, heater and filter, I'll post the specs tomorrow when I wake up. I have to retest anyway. [It's currently 12:30AM]
But with what I have now does anyone know what this might be? And if so what can I do to make him more comfortable.
Thanks in advance.
