New to the forums, and hoping to get some insight on proper Betta care. I think my new Betta might be sick and I'm looking for suggestions/help. Here's the lowdown :D
Purchased: Male Betta @ Petsmart yesterday. Looked to be quite active when I took him home last night.
Tank: 5 Gallons, Fluval Chi setup with filter. (Didn't know I needed a heater, so don't have one of those)
Today when I woke up I noticed white patchy fuzzy looking stuff on him that wasn't there yesterday. He's been pretty lethargic most of the day and is refusing food. I tried taking pictures, but they aren't showing the issues properly : /
Anyone have any ideas on what it is/could be? And how to get him happy again?
Also, is bamboo an okay plant to put in the tank? Or should I stick with grasses etc?
I'll try to post pictures of him as soon as I can, he's a lovely black color with dark red and blue fins.
