Hi guys! Need help here..
5 days ago, i witnessed that my female betta spit out her third pellet and never again want to eat anymore after that. She looks pretty weak and hanging around near the water surface.
Done some research so i suspected maybe constipated due to overfeeding (I didn't realize my brother is feeding her at random times while i was away). Can see her belly is slightly bloated, well just a bit and it seems pretty pale on her belly area while all her other body part is blue.
So i planned to make her fast for 3 days, i changed the water level so that she can take air easily as the water is now shallow. My heater was taken, so i decide to put her tank near the window so that sunlight can reach the tank (I live in borneo, It's hot here). All was okay till 2 days ago, i realized she wasn't responding to my finger anymore or to her reflection from a mirror.
Saw her poo around the tank so i bet her belly is okay now that she is actively swimming around but she BUMPED on every corner of the tank after swimming along the wall. Tested her with the feeding stick she loved to follow around - no respond.
My finger to the tank wall - no respond.
Her reflection from a mirror - no respond.
Dropped a pellet near her - ignored swim pass it.
Touch her body with my finger - She was shocked and swim away!
I realized that her eyes is a bit darker, was like her pupil is slightly big. Today i checked again with a torchlight, then i can see as if there are lenses on her eyes. It is very clear when i took pictures of it on different angles:
I can see the different between her eyes and her sister eyes. Can anyone tell me what do you think it is? Popeye? Infection? What should i do? And she IS already seems blind, she didn't respond to anything unless i touch her.
