Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Nothing noticeable.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? He's become lethargic, sitting in the bottom of the tank. This morning I thought he was dead. I had to reach in the tank to get him to move. He's also been darting. Almost like he has a twitch. He'll swim around a little and then he'll clamp his fins and sink
