I need help, my betta cobalt is sick with something, and I don't know what. last week he stoped flaring, and now he stoped eating. yesterday I fed him, and he went, and missed it, he only moves when I hit the stand. when he moves he shakes like a seziure (heck I don't know how to spell that) he is really weak, and has a really hard time going up for air, and his gill movement is soooooooooo heavy. I love him to bits, and I am going to breed him with luna(who is doing soooooooo awsome)
please help, having him like this is rather depresing
also consider what you'll do with 50 new fish. do you have homes for them all? do you have room for them in your house? will you be willing to heat the entire room to 80 degrees to keep them all toasty? breeding these little guys is a huge commitment. focus on getting your little buddy well first.
how long have you had him?
this isn't the breeding section, he is in a one gallon the water temp is about 79 degrees, I will get him a 5 gallon as soon as possible, the thing is I am only 12, and my money life is 6 bucks weekly, also I clean his bowl weekly. I also have had him for a month now, and he ate the day I got him...
Lani baby,I have tons of room, I have done reacerch for like 5 months now, and I have the whole setup planned out, when I get the money its all downhill from there.
The point is that you don't know their background or what deformities they may pass on to fry, so it's a crap-shoot. You also need to think of who you are going to sell run-of-the-mill pet store bettas to. Most pet stores prefer buying from fish farms because they get multiple colors of betta from all different spawns in one shipment. Sibling bettas all look pretty much the same and are tougher to sell as a batch.
Now, are you here to argue about breeding or are you going to tell me what your tank stats are so we can see what up with colabt ;)
