Hello Helpful Healers,
I've had a blue betta for 8 months. I inherited him fully grown, and he was vibrant, healthy, and properly figured. He has recently developed a curved spine, a slight dim in color, and not as active/spends a fair amount of time up top (spinal shift is probably hindrance). I use Tetra AquaSafePlus for the water and do 75% on a spiral-lollipop shaped gallon tank weekly. When I first got him, I fed him pellets every day for 2 months, and he got swim bladder, so I did the pea cure and reduced feeding to every other day, and he hasn't gotten it since. And he still blows a bubble nest at the top, has appetite, and moves around a bit, but something else is wrong. I've done some investigating, but am not sure on a definitive illness. Based on this info, and the attached picture of him at rest, does anyone have an assessment?
Thank you in advance,
