Help please!! My betta is blind...or is it popeye! I have no idea :((

*** Yesterday's post****
Hi
I had my betta for past 2 years.

I had it in a 3 gallon tank, with filter. There is no heater in tank. I always use tap water, but add few drops of betta-fix to it whenever I change water.

It eats like a pig....and would eat up all the pellets real quick whenever I feed her.

But for past 3-4 days I noted that it was not eating well.

I placed it in a small bowl today, and closely watched her for hours. It won't eat. But most surprisingly it won't react when I tried to touch her with my hand. Even wont flare up when I put a mirror in front of her !


What's wrong with her?
Is she getting/become blind??? :(

I am so sad and miserable!! :((

Plz guide me what to do!
Thanks
:((

Stop using the betta fix I think it my have tree oil in it which can mess up their breathing organ, that is where they breath air from. Also as it getting colder he may be cold and you really need a heater for the tank. How often do you do water changes ? Keep the water extra clean if she is having eye problems it could be pop eye but not sure how you treat that I will try and find that for you.

Okay that sounds good. Please read this and see if it helps. Do you have any pet shops near you where you could go to get the medicine you need to treat her ? You could call first if you do and ask about the medicine you need to treat pop eye and see if they have it . Your very welcome I hope can help your Betta is so pretty and I love Betta such awesome fish !
