My betta (Aodhfionn) has been getting sick lately. He gulps lots of air and stays near the top of his tank. I got him a new tank because in his old one he contracted fin rot for sure and I believe SBD (SWIM Bladder Disease), so I switched him from a 2 1/2 gallon to a 5 gallon. For about 2 days he was mainly floating on his side and seemed to start having an S shape to his body. Yesterday I decided to put him back in his small container I originally bought him in since he was not getting any better and I felt it would be easier for him. Since then he has stopped floating on his side and seems a bit better. Today I found some info on what the S shape may be from and it seems like SBD. I'm not for sure, but I'm going to try the tips on helping as well as continue his fin rot treatment and hopefully he can enjoy his new tank soon. I have attached some photos of him today and screenshots of the article about SBD.

I do think it's swim bladder disease. My gourami was displaying similar conditions, but I gave him a treatment of sbd medicine, and he's alright now.
