Ok, my friend called me and said something was wrong with her new Betta. (Bought him 3 days ago)
She said that he was sitting there doing nothing and resting at the bottom and then started twisting and turning and flipping around (Nose to tail type twisting) and then he froze. She thought he was dead because he floated to the top in a frozen position but then floated to the bottom and then his gills started to move so he wasn't dead but then his ventral? fin -fell off-! Just one of them.
I don't have any water chemstry numbers, the conditioner used is API brand, he has been in colder water because stupid me didn't think about the fact her house is cold but I was planning to put in an order for a heater tomorrow, he is in a 1 gallon tank, no chemicals or sprays have been used in the room with him, he of course isn't kept with other fish, ect so I'm not really sure what to tell her? Has anyone ever experienced this before?
She said he stopped moving again and then started twitching and is still twitching.
