Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? More white coloring around the gills, eyes look different but I can't put a finger on it.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Very lethargic, swims very rarely, not very interested in food. Lays very still, fins clamped, gills have periods of non-movement.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Today
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Did a 75% water change.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? No
How old is your fish (approximately)? Not a clue; he's from PetSmart, only had him about a week.
He seemed fine yesterday; today he's got the symptoms above. I tried a 75% water change but it doesn't seem to have helped. I'm going to get a water test kit later today, but I'm so confused as to what this could be. I can post pictures if that will help.
