I bought my betta a bit over a week ago. I cared for him unconditionally--bought him a filtered tank, changed the water a few times, provided him with a heater, etc. He was doing so well. Today, I came home from my classes at night and saw that food pellets were littered all over the gravel, plants, floating in the water--just everywhere. I was STUMPED as to how this happened then learned that there were kids over at our house today so one of them apparently tried "feeding" my fish while I was gone.
My fish was just laying on its side and occasionally swimming around but mostly just inactive. I quickly changed the water and now he's back in the tank but still looking very inactive. He's just staying near the top of the water laying on his side while moving his fins. I have a feeling he is going to die soon and it's breaking my heart. I can't believe this happened. What can I do? Is there anything possible?
