Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? It looks as though his fins aren't as full as the first day I got him, but I'm not entirely sure.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Since he is in a bigger tank, he swims around a lot more. I don't think I've ever seen him flare and cannot get him to do so with a mirror. He uses his hammock or rests at the bottom when tired (in a hiding spot with glass beads).
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Today.

Does your fish have any history of being ill? No, got him from PetCo.
