My betta, Dragon, is just floating at the top of the tank and doesn't move unless you tap the glass, and his fins seem to be clamped. If i didn't tap the tank I would think he was dead!!! He sits like that for hours and just literally floats. sometimes at the top & sometimes just laying on the bottom. The bottoms of his fins are stuck together. This is my replacement fish to my other one, Shadow, who was doing the same thing and then died. & i don't think I can do that again! Please help.
