Hellooo I'm pretty new to this site but it looks quite helpful. Okay so I have one female crowntail betta named Xena. She is so cute and lively. She lives in a 1 gallon tank, I wish i could get her a 5 gallon but I live in a dorm :( so sorry about that.
She seems to get swim bladder quite often. Like once a week. She's a tiny tiny wisp of a thing. I feed her 2 pellets once every other day. That routine seems to keep her the healthiest. And she didn't have any swim bladder for a while. But then it started happening again. I mean i soak her pellets before i feed them to her to make them soft, but she still gets swim bladder. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Oh and i tried feeding her cooked peas (small cut with the shell off and everything). And she wouldn't eat it. :/ Soo what's the next step for me to prevent swim bladder?
I've had other bettas as well so I'm not completely a noob. but Xena is my first female betta.
