Read the Sticky called Betta Disease Treatment 2 up at the top of this portion of the website. Sounds like your betta's got the beginning of Popeye coming on. To treat, all you'll need is clean water, your water conditioner, and your aquarium salt. I think it said to use 1 tsp aquarium salt per gallon of water (don't forget to use your conditioner!--use a smaller "hospital tank" container, because it says you'll need to do 100% water changes daily. Keep your temps around 75-76F. It also says not to do this over 10 days. If this works, you'll see results much sooner than that. Be sure to read the Sticky before you get started with this though, OK? With a little luck, maybe that will be all that's wrong with your fishy. Hope it all works well for you!
