Yikes, I'm so upset! I came home from work today and I couldn't see my betta.... I was here about two hours, thinking he was probably in his little cave.... Then, all the sudden, I noticed that he was caught down below some rocks (yes, they were bigger rocks....now I'm going to get those things out and never use them again!).... Anyway, I flew over and pulled the rocks out of the way and he made a beeline to the top to get air. He's now been uncaught for about 5 minutes and continues to go to the surface to get air... a lot.
I guess I just need to wait to see if he's okay.... I guess he needs lots of air for a while.... should I do anything else? I have some aquarium salt, but I have no idea how to use it.... or maybe I should just leave him alone for a while?
Please, if you have any advice..... How long can they go without air? I have no idea how long he's been under the rocks!!
Thank you for listening.
