Hi guys, I'm new. :) I've been wandering around the forums ever since I got my new crowntail betta a few months ago.
Sadly, he has a problem.
I'm completely sure I've been overfeeding him, and he's been bloated for almost a week. He's also got yet another fungal infection which I'm treating with Jungle's Fungus Clear. I'm on day 5 just in case he has Drospy, or something else I can't identify.
A few days go he'd either be staying under the filter (which scares me badly, so I turned if off completely) or laying somewhere at the bottom of the tank. Since I turned the filter off this morning, he's started floating at the top of the tank, resting on a silk plant I have.
He's in a 2.5G tank, without a heater, which I plan to buy sometime soon. I thought our house would be warm enough (usually 73 degrees downstairs, so about 75 upstairs where he is), but I'm not sure that's working. I want him to get better!
Also, he won't eat. At first I thought he was just constipated because he would still swim around, so I fasted him for 2 days, but he barely eats a thing. The bloat hasn't changed at all, and I feel like I'm just waiting for him to turn into a pinecone and die. :( I've never really had any luck with fish, but I want him to live! I will not give up until he dies!
But does anyone know what I should do?
