Hey guys... my betta fish, Al, is having trouble eating.
I posted in a thread a while back where he had something on his eye, kinda like a grey patch or something. We tried treating it, but it never went away. Never showed any signs of anything though since until recently...
Anyways, as of the last week and a half he can't really eat his food. He tries real hard over the course of feeding time. But he sort of... over shoots his food. He is misjudging where it is and missing it most of the time. It's making me real sad. He used to be such a pig.
My question is... do you think it's possible he is losing his vision and he's just having trouble finding the food? Cause he's just judging it horribly. What do I do to help him eat more? Should I feed him a pellet instead of flakes so he can go after a bigger target?
Also, my tank is fine. Filtered. Heated. The whole 9 yards. Have not had a single problem over the last 4 months since we moved him into a heated and filtered environment.
