Spazzing means to be moving/swimming spasmodically, and a bubbler, I think, adds oxygen to the water and acts kind of like a filter.
I don't have a bubbler. also, what does spasmodically mean?

Well, to swim spasmodically would be so swim in little fits or jerks. Like if a person were to have a spasm.

I am so sorry that someone would do that to your fish :( my friends joke about feeding my fish drugs. (They watch Skins too much.) I definitely don't take the joking lightly. I really hope he gets better! xx

I'm really sorry about your fish! I don't have any advice, but I really hope he gets better. It's terrible that someone would be so mean to him.

I'm so sorry that happened to dede. if that was my fish...LAWSUIT. Willful animal abuse is not okay. Make sure he doesn't turn into a killer. Sick, sick person. I'd give him a call.

Do you have stress coat in the water? Make sure ammonia, etc. stays at 0ppm, and add some stress coat and just keep him comfortable. Bettas are hardy creatures. Make sure he eats. He's probably really disoriented. Give him time to rest. I wouldn't shine any lights on him because he might be sensitive? If he won't eat pellets/freeze dried, get him live food.

poor baby :( Best of luck.

^ I would want to do the same, but unfortunately no one would take us seriously if we filed a lawsuit against someone for betta fish abuse ://

Dec. 2nd- 1 day after getting my fish banged up, My real B-day.

mmm... I'm worried he won't make it, he keeps laying down and breathing somewhat heavily... he only comes up for air and food. this is not a good b-day present...

EDIT: great, now my dad put in the filter! Really? T_T

For a king 5 gallons is too small. I would have killed your friend. Then turn them to Salmon food. IAL and Aquarium salt will help prevent infection. Sorry about your Betta. Live food might help too.
