Hi everyone, I am a new user here. Have been wanting a betta for a while and did a lot of research. Finally excited when I bought her, she is a sweet little energetic female. (Sorry no pics! My camera's macro setting is not good).
I thought I was doing everything right but I noticed yesterday that she has been floating near the top not swimming and was concerned, but I didn't think too much of it. This morning she was floating in the same place still and wouldn't eat her pellets... I tried bloodoworms and she wouldn't eat those either. It breaks my heart watching her, she looks almost like she's pouting.
Any idea what could be wrong? Last week her tank temperature was fluctuating a lot as I tried to get her heater to the proper setting. I was horrified to see it was 85 at one point... I removed her and floated some ice in the tank to cool the water down.... Perhaps this is the cause?
Please help... I don't want to lose her!
