today he was spazzing! I am not sure what to do! I thought it was going to be okay ... can someone help me? I posted a thread in the disease section.

after I did a water change he was twisting for about 15 secs, sank to the bottom and than bubbles came out of his gills, than he swam to the top of the tank, took a breath and was acting normal again.

a few min. ago, I fed him and he spazzed out again!!

what is causing this? I tried searching up on google, but came up empty. Not sure what to do =(

One of my boys did that. It just means he's scared what I did for my boy was I left him alone and covered part of his tank with a towel. I think he might have jist beem adjusting. My boy hasn't done that since a week after I got him!

I started treating him for septicemia, I think he probably have it because his pectoral fin is kind of bloody.

He is doing a little better today, no spazzes so far but he is still breathing incredibly fast and hard. I emailed a experienced fish keeper from my aquarium society and he said, bubbles coming out of gills regularly might indicate the fish's gills aren't functioning properly. So I am just keeping him close to the top of the tank with lots of silk plants to rest on, that way he can directly take in air.

fingerscrossed he can recover by next week and move to the 10 gallon!

I sure hope he will be ok. Sounds like you are doing all you can for him. Be proud of that no matter what happens. Prayers!

I am so happy he found you!
I love my betta fish so much that I can't go to a pet store because I want to take them all home with me!
I hope Chance will get through his illness, after all that he needs to live! He is such a handsome boy.
