Exclamation My fish is sick please help me!

Hello, My betta has had a lump on his side now for the last two days, Today it is much larger. He swims active when goes for air but stay's at the bottom for long periods. His tank is 2 1/2 gal water change is done weekly and have added a little salt to it. When I stand in front of he is waiting for food and is eating, Have reduced the amount greatly. Not sure could use some help.

Do a search for "swim bladder disorder" that looks like what the problem is.. I have no experience with that though so I can't really offer any advice.

LOL We moved there from VA almost 6 years ago and I still don't know my way around. Savannah is really nice to visit... but HOT or raining ;). The beach is pretty nice.

Thanks, I like the name Jaws too.. I call my fish that when they're bad and tear up their tails.
