Exclamation

I'll need mom's help with the bleach last time I used it to clean something and got way too much on accident Needlessly to say nobody was very happy

One of my fishies, Ollie is getting pretty old. He's dull and starting to turn gray in place. Ollie also sits on his tail and lies sideways at times but he still likes to swim around. I have him in his own little tank just for him. He seems to like that better because for awhile when I first had him he was with one of his buddies and we lost him and after that Ollie didn't want to be with anyone else although I've tried seeing if he would be willing to be with another little buddy he didn't seem happy in fact he seemed downright depressed Hated seeing him like that so I haven't tried it again.

Do you think Ollie is suffering? I hate thinking that my little friend is hurting.

Question

Why would he be depressed right now? I know we lost some more of our little fishie friends....but he was doing this before they died. Do you think he knew? I also feel like he is just trying to fight death. Do you think he's scared to die?

It is hard to tell what a betta is thinking some times. If he lost a tank mate of his then it would be like losing a best friend to us.

Good evening sassyfriend, I am currently watching Big Brother (Oh how I love this show). Anyway, I too am pressed for cash -- who isn't. I am going back to school next month. Don't feel pressured to do anything. Just keep doing your water changes and testing and your betta fishes will be fine. I am wondering if the food that you are using is causing the film. I feed Rusty Omega One Betta Pellets. It is the one that most owners recommend for their fishes. Hope I am helping you just a bit?
