My poor little Rusty

Rusty isn't doing very well today. When I got up this morning, he was on the bottom of his tank and he's very pale. Today is his regular water change day so I went ahead and did that and put some salt in his water. He's moving around but not much. I'll keep an eye on him but he really doesn't look good.

Oh nooo! :( I wish there were betta fish doctors so we could bring them in to get examined. I hope he gets better!

Oh poor boy!!! I love Rusty. :((

Hope he's OK. How old is he? AKA, how long have you had him?

I got him last April. He's on his side right now. I can't tell if he's breathing or not. I'm going to wait awhile before poking around in there to see if he's dead. Ugh, I have no idea why a perfectly healthy fish would just up and die. Yeah, BettaFishCrazy, I wish they could tell us what's wrong.

Thanks guys. I think he's gone. I'm just waiting a little while to see if there's any movement to make sure.
I'm thinking of getting another female and moving Merlot into Rusty's 2.5 gallon and putting the female into Merlot's 1 gallon.
