Symptoms and Treatment
How has your Betta fish's appearance changed? I can’t tell any difference
How has your Betta fish's behavior changed? It just lays there, no activity whatsoever!
When did you start noticing the symptoms? When I got off work yesterday, it lays at the very bottom of the tank, seems like his grasping for air, his grills does move, and at one time I saw him bouncing up and down, and finally he ended at the bottom head first.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Yes, daily water change 100% since this happened, with Aquarium salt ( 2 table spoon) and yes I do dissolve it first before pouring it to the tank, plus water heater is ON.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? NO, this is the first time. I know that he doesn't really eat as much as the other Betta, and his very sensitive to noise, and it take couple days for him to adjust to his surroundings, especially after a water change, he normally just stay at the bottom of the tank, but eventually moves around.
How old is your fish (approximately)? When I got them, I would say they are about 1 in. long. Not sure how old that would be.
I don't want to lose him, needs urgent HELP!
Thank you in advance.
