So a couple of days ago my sister got me a betta as a birthday present. I named him Marcus
He seemed pretty stressed the first two days. He wasn't all interested in the food I gave him (which were flakes) so I went and bought some Betta Pellets.
But since I got him he rarely swims around or extends his fins. He only swims around using the fins on the side.. if that makes sense. He's refused to eat his food, just ignores it. He goes to the surface of the tank for air.And just yesterday I saw he had this scratch? hole? on him. On the top of his back, it's small and white looking. He is also blue but starting to have red in his fins..? I don't know what's wrong with him
I just changed his tank 3 days ago and just now. It seems that after I put him back in his tank it's like nothing is wrong and swims all over the tank. But shortly after he goes back to being weird and remains in one spot, sometimes it's at the bottom of the tank and sometimes the top.
Is it fungus? depression? I've spend all day looking online to see what's wrong with my poor Marcus and I can't seem to find anything!
Please help my poor Marcus
