Three days ago, I rescued a crowntail betta from petsmart with popeye. He is in a 1 gallon heated hospital tank and is currently being treated with maracyn, the only other thing added to the water is prime. Ive been treating for three days but im not sure if it is/should be improving. His overall condition seems to be deteriorating, labored breathing, very lethargic, hasnt eaten anything since i got him, isnt responding to movement, but still responds to being touched. today he started doing this "sitting up" thing, im not sure if this should mean anything? any advice on what else i could do to help the little guy?
btw this isnt the tank im keeping him in... i put him in there during his daily water change and it made it easier to get a good picture
