Thank you for the replies and food suggestions! But I found out he's overeating like he's never seen food!
OK. His rectum receded, and was great for the last few days. Minimal feedings and water changes.
But after feeding him, I put an algae wafer in the tank today for the ramshorn snails and when I checked on him his belly is HUGE
! Rectum is not protruding (yet
), but I can't believe how he is constantly eating whatever he can find even though his gut is FAT
I was hoping to be able to add him to a community tank eventually, but if he can't control his appetite I don't see how this would be possible for him as he'd constantly be eating the other fishes food.
Anyone ever have a Betta eat like this??? Is he destined to be a lone fish in a tank with a strict diet?
