Hi there, been reading threads from her for ages, but now I actually have a problem, so I hope someone can help me!!!
I have 2 male crown tail bettas in 5lt hotel tanks.
Both are heated to 25-26°c.
I perform 100% water changes once a week.
They (as all my fish) are fed twice a day, around 4-5.
Ph is 7.0, no spikes ever recorded (i test weekly).
My male who is (i think) ill, is at least 9 months (plus LFS age).
I've noticed in the last week he has become very "lethargic" seems only content to sit in an upright position on the boutin of his tank. Or he actually lays down as if in a sleeping position. Whilst I've read alot of this, nothing seems to match, or be solved by something in already doing...
He also sits atop of his thermometer, just below the water line.
He is eating fine.
Rises the the surface, but just sinks back down.
I haven't noticed or identified any spots, redness, velvety appearance or anything.
He is normaly a very active little man, flaring up showering off and the like... I'm so worried he's suffering... Please help...
