Okay, so after about a month of looking around this forum, I decided to join so I could get some input on what is wrong with my betta. I am thinking he just needs a warmer tank, so he is going to be put in my ten gallon tank once I put all the fish in the ten gallon into a much larger tank (At least 25 gallons), and change all the water and cycle it.
My betta (Alpha (my dad named him XD)) currently is in a 1.5 gallon tank. He has a small filter, and a bubbler. There is one plastic plant in the tank along with a little cave. I feed him flake food, pellets and I tried frozen blood-worms but he didn't eat any of them. The tank is currently at 70 degrees. He has some issues swimming around, and just sorta floats at the top of the tank. He used to have some fin rot, but it looks like that has cleared up. Also, his spine is sorta curved, but he can straighten out. He is very skinny, and is slowly becoming dull in color.
I will be happy to post some pictures if needed. I think he just needs a warmer tank around 76 degrees, but sadly I won't be able to get him in the ten gallon for a few weeks
. I am thinking about just putting him in the ten gallon tank with my neon tetras, and my australian rainbow that I have raised since she was just an egg. I am a little hesitant of that though. I don't know if the other fish will pick on him. I used to have a betta with some neon tetras and he did fine, but am just a little hesitant after doing some research.
