I have Rocco my Betta because he was the center piece at a wedding and I knew if I didn't take him home, who knows where he'd end up. He only has a one gallon tank (for now, as that's all I could afford for the time being.) He has fake plants, a heater, air pump/filter?, thermometer and heater (that doesn't work the greatest.) I feed him Betta pellets (soaked, so he doesn't choak) alternated with flakes to give him variety and he gets blood worms on the weekends. I've had him just over 5 months now. He has a timer that turns his light on at 7am and off at 11pm. The only thing I'm not the best betta mommy at, is cleaning his tank. I don't do it as often as I know I should. (I probably clean it once every couple weeks 100% water change, scrub all plants, gravel & tank, and add conditioner.) Lately i've noticed some of his scales seem to be kinda silvery/off colored, and this morning when I got up and said hi to him, he just laid at the bottom of the tank and I thought he was dead. I was pleasantly surprised by his 'hello' when I got home from work. Today, when he is swimming around, he seems kinda "hyper". I feed him once a day in the evening and he ate his flakes tonight. He's kind of lethargic otherwise. I'm not sure what's wrong with him/what I should do. I have limited funding, but I love my little guy more than anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
