Oh no, what is wrong with my CT??

I got this crown tail betta about 2 weeks ago, and he was the most active and most healthy betta I have right now. Suddenly, 2 nights ago, I noticed he was not as active. Now today, he is barely alive, not eating, and floating sideways and upside down. He has not fanned his fins out since. He is nearly motionless.

What happened? I didn't change anything, and this was sudden out of nowhere. The water is fine, and nothing was done to make this happen.

Perhaps it is Swim Bladder Disorder? This is caused by over feeding.

I am quite sure that it is not swim bladder, as he looks normal and has not been overfed. It seems like he lost his will to live and is just slowly dying.

He died just then. What could have caused it?

RIP Ren!

Overfeeding is not the only thing that causes SBD, it's just the most common thing. It sounds mostly like SBD though.

Can swim bladder appear suddenly and then cause the fish to die within two nights?

He was a very active betta. I noticed that he was more lazy last night. Tonight he died.

Swim bladder CAN appear suddenly but it usually doesn't kill fish. Maybe he had some kind of infection.

RIP Ren! I agree with what DQ said, he may have had some kind of infection or internal problem that you didn't know about...
