What size is your tank? about 2 gallons
what temperature is your tank? just at room temp, since it is starting to snow i think it is too cold. going to go look at heaters soon
Does your tank have a filter? Nope
My tank has a lid with slits in it.
I feed my fish these brownish flakes, says it is for betta fish.
i feed it once in the morning.
I try to change it when ever the water starts to look pretty gross
We change the whole tank, which i just read is wrong, so we wont be doing that anymore
we use a fish and tap water conditioner that has aloe vera, when changing water, we also let the water sit for quite a while before changing it.
My fish now seems fat and losing colour near his front. Also he has lost some of his tail. no holes just lost the end of it.
Now all he does is sit at the bottom of the tank as before he would be around different places and near the top and almost jump out then you when to feed him, now he doesnt really move unless disturbed.
He has been less active for a while now, about a month or so, and just recently i noticed part of his tail was missing.
I put some of the conditioner in again, since it says it is supposed to help un-stress and heal the fish. I'm going to go to the pet store and look for a cheap heater tomorrow, since our house is pretty cold, and he was by a outside wall and i know that makes it even colder so we moved him.
This is the first time i've had him be sickly
He is about 1 and a half years old
Thats about it. I was just wondering what i should do to help him and whats wrong. Thanks for any help you can give me.
