Nero has looked almost sad the last few days. Everything is great - the heat is slightly low for my preference, but it'll do until I get home. I'm changing his water tonight and I hope that'll perk him up. I actually wonder if he's cold - his fins are clamped and he doesn't move much. at first I thought it was because I wasn't interacting with him as much since most of my attention has been on my tailbiting HM, but that couldn't be it. Any other suggestions?

If he's clamping, I want to say he might be feeling a bit chilled. Warming his tank up a bit and doing a water change should help :)

I'm moving the boys back home for the summer this Sunday, so the heater can hold until then. The temperature is hovering around 76, and I plan on upgrading both boys to nicer, bigger heaters. Hopefully he's OK. I had him flare at his reflection for a few minutes and he's seemed to perk up.

Sounds like your betta might have Velvet. Try posting this in the Sick forum and use the sticky at the top of the forum so everyone knows as much about your betta and his home as possible. You'll want to quarantine your fish into a smaller container if possible to treat as Velvet is really contagious. I'm not sure how to treat it so I'd ask in the sick forum.

No, this isnt something they usually do. Is there anything in the tank that he couldve hurt himself on? Wedged into? Please take care to monitor him and make sure nothing else happens.

I think it's more like mineral deposits or some sort of algae...How long are the lights on for? And how often are your water changes? Infrequent changes and.or too much light make algae happy, which grows in many types. It could be that.

I cant tell anything from the pics.

And Ich wouldnt look like much of anything on a plant, trust me. It wouldnt be ich, ever.

I think around, what? 6ish months? At least in a really remarkable way. Though, with a good food they can continue to grow over time. My older fish was pretty old when I got him, and continued to grow.

Theyre "grown", like look like adults but might be smaller, around 3-5 months.

If you ask a breeder, theyd probably know.
