Is Redsnow going to die soon?

He is not acting like himself. All he has been doing lately is staying at the top corners of the take and not moving. When I feed him he does eat and may fight "the other fish" for a few minutes then he will go back to his corner again. Is he ok? Why is he acting like this?

Could you tell us some more about about Redsnow?

From your pictures I see he is in a 1 gallon tank, so how often do you do water changes? What is the tank water temperature? And what do you mean by 'other fish' -- what other fish is he housed with?

His water is changed about 3 to 5 times a month. I'm not sure what the water tempature is but he is always changed with room tempature water. The other fish is his refelection.

If thats a 1 gallon tank, you need to be doing water changes once every 2 days. That's probably why he's acting funny, he just can't take the poor water quality much longer.

Yeah, very likely he is sick because the water quality is bad...you need to do a few 100% water changes a week, especially in a smaller tank.

Also, he could be cold. Unless the room you keep him in is constantly 75-82 degrees, he'll do a lot better with a heater, since bettas are tropical fish and need warm water.
