baby betta won't move much.

i usually do 100% changes to nemo's water twice a week. but, this time he's been acting a bit funny. i noticed that he's not moving so much and he's either at the top of the tank or near the bottom. and he's not reacting to whenever i go up to him now. temp is around 75. i feed him 1 pellet 4 times a day since he's still a baby. could he be bloated? i noticed that he's got a bit bigger. so, i'll probably not feed him all day tomorrow.

I am unaware if it is different than adult bettas but I believe 75F is far too cold. Usually the ideal temperature range for an adult is stable between 78-80F

normally his temp is between 74-76 all the time and he's perfectly okay. but, i think he's got swim bladder seeing now i can tell he's a bit swollen.

I would keep a baby betta at 80. Do you have any updates? Is he doing any better?
