My betta fish is having issues, since last night i noticed he has been chilling near the surface not moving as much. Now he is barely moving and tends to float up a little bit. There are tears in his fins and it appears "stringy", his skin seems to be "peeling" or stringy too. He noses into the ground or the sides a little bit.
He was in a .5 gallon tank for about 1.5 weeks, he has now been in a 3 gallon since Thursday. There are two neon tetras and 2 ghost shrimp as his tank mates. There is a bamboo plant and a Anubias plant. There is also this aquarium decoration. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The PH is around 7.2-7.6. I just used some PH down to lower it a bit.
Part of his skin seems faded and not as bright as before. I am also using one of those UV lights for the plants to grow. I hope this is enough info, i dont have kits for amonnia or nitrates. However last night when i went to petco i had them test my water and they said it was perfect. oh the temperature fluctuates between 76-82 degress. I havve a heater but I havent plugged it in since the temperature is usually in the correect range.
