Ok this has all happened pretty quick. I came home and fed Walter a half hour ago. Mom said he wouldnt come out of his plant to eat. He took one bite and started swimming really erratically.Darting & Bobbing his head up out of the water really quickly. His swimming was wobbly and then he went up into his plant and floated to the surface on his side with his whole head out of the water!
I quickly took him out and put him in clean water with some aquarium salt. I think his heater was too hot for him. He has always seemed to prefer cooler water but tonight with the heat from our home on along with his heater made his water 80-81 degrees. It felt really warm to the touch. Now that hes in his temp tank he is sitting at the bottom and has to swim realy fast and wobbly to the top gasps for air quickly then sinks immediatley like someting is pulling him down. He's sorta of laying on his side now and breathing very heavily.
Is he just dying? Is there something I can do? Please help me I'm so attached to him and im crying at the thought of him dying!!
