Question Floating????

My new Betta does not seem to be swimming below the surface. Previous Bettas that I have owned swam all around, but this guy seems to stay at the top. Is there something wrong with him???

I dunno much but hopefully an older member with more knowledge will come along and be able to help u.

but for now I'd say it's swim bladder.. is the fishes tummy big...
causes : overfeeding
Cure : stop feeding him for a few days

Good luck!
