Hi fellow betta lovers, i am desperate and need some help
I have a gorgeous betta named Lava.. he was bright red and very lively until tonight.
Found him sunken on the floor and leaning a bit to one side of his aquarium and pretty much lifeless and his gills barely going.. He's also faded a little bit and I have no clue what is wrong
His little side fins see to move occassionally but the rest of him is just limp.. His eyes seem clear and I can't see any fungus or anything obviously wrong except his slight discoloration
He is my first betta and have had him for close to 8 months. He was originally in a fish bowl and 3 weeks ago I got him into a proper fish tank complete with filter, heater and have put in the usual stuff i used in his bowl - ie water conditioner/water ager.
I have now removed him from the fish tank and back into his bowl to isolate any other thing that might be the trigger to his unwellness
It is now 9pm where I am and no pet shop is open for me to get answers and help and was hoping I can get some advice tonight on what to do till I can go in the morning..
Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can give me. Cheers
