I noticed earlier today that my Betta fish Damon was hanging out at the bottom of the tank and then I noticed this red fuzzy thing on the end of his anal fin and now I'm pretty worried about him.
He's usually hanging around near the top of the water in his bowl and there's usually bubbles on the surface of the water and he's usually swimming around and having a good time so I don't know whats going on with him now.
Is there something wrong with him and if so what can I do to help him out?
