My female 1 yr old Betta hasn't been well for 3 days and hasn't eaten.Symptoms were:Clamped fins,loss of color,loss of appetite,lethargic,easily spooked.
I treated most of her symptoms with aquarium salt and am still unsure what she had,buy today I have seen improvement.She ate a few pieces of peas that I fed her(3 tiny pin-head balls.)But it has Bern so HARD to get het to eat!Every time I feed her pellets(normal diet) ot flakes(last resort food I use),she eats it and then a after either a few minutes or a few second she spits the food out,then trys to eat it,but keeps spitting it out and then eventually leave it?!I'm so confused as to why she's doing this?Could it be apart of the unknown illness she had?I have heard Bettas spit put food when their sick.Anyway,I was so relieved to see her eat a few pieces of a pea,but obviously she can't eat peas forever!
My question is why is she spitting out her food and not succeeding in swallowing it and also,how can I get her to eat her daily food(pellets)?Thanks for any help!Any advice could possibly help!
