So... I've just gotten my first betta today. He's small, but cute and pretty fiesty, which is why I chose him. It wasn't until I got him into his nice 5 gal aquarium however that I noticed that he can't seem to stay down. Every time he stops swimming, he floats to the top.
I've looked into threads here that seemed similar, and I guess it sounds like a swimbladder thing. I just wanted to clarify however; is the appropriate plan of action to fast him for a few days and then feed daphnia?
I hope it's nothing I've done wrong. I guess he might have already had the issue before I got him. I almost feel as though I should be trying not to get too attached to him until I know that he'll survive past a week.
