A few months ago I picked up a VT from walmart but I can't figure out why he is always so clamped and lethargic. It annoys me because I am not new to betta keeping but I cant figure this out
I don't have any recent pics of him but this was him when I took him home:
however, now his fins are very tightly clamped together and nothing I do works to unclamp them. He gets his 2X week WC, I put him in a larger, divided tank and he bit his fins. I have had him in every size tank from 1 gallon up to the 10 gallon, in cycled and uncycled tanks, heater and no heater. Bare tank with just an ugly cave and filled up with fake plants.
NOTHING makes him happy and I don't think he is actually sick - nothing indicates that he is...
Now he is in a 3 gallon petco petkeeper.
