Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Chin and part of face has dulled and he nommed up his tail
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? lethargic, doesn't move much and he has NEVER bit his tail before :(
When did you start noticing the symptoms? 2 weeks ago

is he still eating? or has he stopped? how much AQ salt are you using per gal?

you said it's 78* but there's no heater?

and i would do one more water change a week if not 3 in all. 50% and 100% for a 2 gal.

He eats one bite then stops. Just a pinch of AQ salt. My room is very warm so theres no need for a heater. I've always done 100% water changes, so thats not the problem.
