My Betta recently recovered from a couple intense episodes of bloating. Luckily it was not dropsy and he has been doing ok. The only problem is that he is swimming around so much lazier then before - on occasion he will regain a strong buoyancy preventing him from swimming low (he mildy rebloats?) but what worries me is that he "sleeps" so much more often now - sometimes completely sideways until provoked.
Some days I will return to his 1.5 gal tank and notice a thin reflective, almost oily looking layer on the surface of the water - is this a normal thing produced by bettas?
I feed him 1 pellet every other day
What do you guys think it is?
I appreciate this
