Okay... My betta fish is over 4 years old.
He sinks to the bottom of the tank and just sits there... He struggles to swim to the surface for air and food.
Now, this seems to be a swim bladder disorder right? I heard the solution is to starve him for about 3 days. But.. it's been about a week, and no change. He's getting horribly skinny too...
He's had this before but recovered from it just fine.. This betta has even recovered from dropsy, 2 years ago. (I realize he might be getting old...)
I heard maybe feeding him peas or changing his diet could help?
Specs: He's in a 2 gallon tank of spring water, which receives some sunlight during the day. I put a drop of Hikari Betta Revive in the water (something that prevents and controls diseases) but it's done nothing. I feed him Top Fin and Hikari Betta Bits.
What can i do to help him? =(
