I've only been a Betta fish owner for 4 months. The first month Ms. Blue was alive with activity and then someone told me I needed to change the plastic plant for a live fern. That is when became sick. She would have spots and over the last 2 weeks I had new fern and all she would do was lay in her hammock and blow bubbles or lay in the bottom of the tank. She was not eating. Last night I removed the live plant and this morning she skin is clearing up and she is so active and hungry. Has any one else had trouble with live plants making their Betta sick. The store associate told me she was blowing bubbles because she was in heat and was ready to mate. Is this possible.
Thanks to the posts I'm finding answers to help Ms. Blue.
PS. I wanted to add the pic but I need to find them in my computer.
