so i just joined this site because it seems to have very good info. on it. and my Betta fish.... idk whats wrong with it. i looked at so many posts and idk.
to just get all the details in, so it might be long. I got my Betta fish around May 15. I got a male and so far I've just been calling him fishy. the first week i had him he was soo happy.. with the biggest bubble nest. and i didnt know what that was at the time... so i found this site. anyways he moved around so much and was very active. i fed him 2-3 pellets in the morning when i got up for school and at night around 7 or 8 pm. I was so satisfied that bubble nests meant my fish was healthy and happy. After a week and a few days I did his first water change/ fish bowl cleaning. it wasn't as hard as I thought. went well. That was all done i put drops into his water to make it pure or whatever and waited a little bit. he seemed fine and normal for a while then he started floating kinda at the top kinda sitting there, not moving alot. he had a small bubble nest then. he was still eating fine too. then he started acting lethargic and I called a friend and I just did another water change. I read on here that they can get stressed out. .and I wondered if he was sitting at the top cause of that. ...or if he's sleeping??? ? idk how a fish sleeps. lol. so it continually happened.. i would clean the tank, put drops in... he's be fine.. then this weird thing after a day or two. Now this week he just seems to be getting worse. he has a little bit of curl on the end of two of his main fins.. idk if thats just him or something bad.. . but it seems its getting worse. he had a little curl like that when i got him though. he also seems to be loosing his color a little bit behing his little fins. and he hasnt been eating much this week.. ..and NO bubble nests... .he tried eating a pellet that was blown up from the water but he is a small fish so he couldnt. he seems to have a problem eating his food this week or doesnt like it. ... ?? ?i have no idea. we did a water check at petsmart they said the water was acidic probably from his food that would be at the bottom. but he usually eats all and is fine. so i think thats all ...... its alot. it someone can HELP... that would be soooo amazing.
