I treated him for whatever the heck he has, i'm sure it was bloating then i though it could be constipation..since they are bot internal i thought hey why not use epsom salt..and he's been doing better. He will stay at the top if his plants there which it always is..when he lays down his tail and bottom half sink..but could him being sick really affect him eating??
He doesn't have a problem with straight up eating, he has been sick, like my info says but i tried a garlic..and nothing!): he is dealing with something like bloat, constipation and buoyancy problems. I'm just really wanna save him,
I think if he is not feeling well that could be why he doesnt want to eat. The garlic trick is a good one to try just soak the pellets in some garlic juice or the New Life Spectrum already has garlic in their pellets. I have heard Bettas can go 2 weeks without eating so keep offering him his food . Good luck I hope he feels better and will eat soon !!!
1. I can add one soon, after typing this
2.I'm adding 1 tablespoon stirred until dissolved in warm water.
3.He has been in epsom salt for 3 days now
4.I'm doing 100% daily changes due to the smell it gives off and so he gets fresh salt every time.
5.When i used to feed him bloodworms i'd take the end of a spoon move it around to get his attention and he would come up and i'd feed him. Now when i get his attention he just stays at the bottom or come up to the top to get air.
