Please Help...Betta Is Vertical!

hi all,

i'm new here.

got a 1 gallon tank with treated spring water and no plants.

just got rid of ich, and now betta just sits vertically at the top of the water.

meaning...nose at the top, with fins hanging straight down.

his fins are open, but he doesn't move much.

what could be the problem...swim bladder?

thanks!

could be swim bladder, could be stress form the ich meds. I'd give him a salt bath and daily 50% water changes for a few days and see if it turns around.
