So about four days ago I decided to change her diet to more of a normal bettas diet. I cut back on the nori and the blood worms. I also started feeding her less. She's been acting always hungry but I ignored it since really she is getting enough food. But she's getting to active and acting desprite to get food. She's to the point she doesn't casually play with her food she attacks it. It's like she's lost her flipping mind. I wish I could take a picture but she's zooming around just like the bleeping goldfish (in the other tank another problem child). And i just noticed she tore her tail fin twice
. I might have to take out all the decoration till she cools off. I plan on doing another full change tommarow. In stead of loosing color she's gaining color.

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Actually yes she's started to get in more color. She's also getting a round white belly. Still scaley not fuzzy or weird other then round.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Thus why I am writing this. She swims one direction and suddenly switches directions and does this down in a zig sag pattern. She swimming around trying to eat everything in site. She even swam hard into the side of the tank trying to get at food that stuck to the side of the tank on the outside. Basically she's acting like she's desperate for food, not begging behavior.
