So I have my fish blinky and for a while I have been having problems. He is almost 3 and could easily be 4. I dont know how old he was when I got him, but he is going on his 3rd year with me. He is in a 10g tank he shares with blurp a fiesty female. My problem.

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? He is really skinny. He is a large fish, and his head is huge in comparison to his body.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? He doesnt eat much if anything, he just lays around doesnt have any energy. Blurp got on his side, took a small chunk out of his tail. He hid in the corner while she dominated the tank. he was never aggressive, but believe me in his prime he could have taken her.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? a few months ago, but it just keeps getting worse.

I am thinking he may be just getting old, I just hate seeing him this way. Is there really anything I can do, or am I just going to have to wait it out?
