Boba saga continues now he's vertical

So Boba the Betta seemed to recover from fin rot, ick, and whatever else almost killed him a few weeks ago. He was swimming. He was eating. All was good. yesterday he started hanging out vertically in the tank and that is how he has been now. Doesn't want to eat.

I did a complete water change and am afraid that may have done it. He seemed much better before the change.

any ideas about the vertical floating?
thanks

I don't know what the issue is for Boba though I do hope he gets better soon, Our CT Tomato is doing pretty much the same thing and is very spastic when he swims. He lays on his side a lot sometimes at the bottom and other times on a high leaf on his silk plant. Not sure what is up. He will eat however.

yep that sounds like Boba. He looks awful right now- laying under a plant on his side. I feel terrible. I have had him almost a year. I bought him for my 5 year old daughter and well, I have grown very fond of him as he lives next to my desk.

I'm going to do a 50% water change on Tomato's tank today while the kiddo is at school and hope it makes him happier and clears up what ever this might be. I will let you know how it goes.

Yes it is so easy to get attached to the lil guys.
