Hey everyone, I am new to these forums, and I'm mainly here because i think that there might be something wrong with my Betta. In total i have had three Bettas, two died. My current Betta has been with me for more than six months, his name is Toby, he is a male and he is pink. He is showing signs by acting like my past two Bettas, which has started to worry me. I woke up this morning to find blood worms that i gave him last night still at the top of his water. Toby loves to eat, especially blood worms. He usually jumps at them the moment i put them in his water. He isnt as active, and he is swimming diagonally. I also spotted what looks like a little bit of ick on his fins. He also looks a little bloated. Is Toby sick? If so is there anyway i can treat him? I just changed his water today because i was afraid his water was the problem, but after the water change he still is acting the same.
Here are some pictures:
