My betta, Zeuss, lives in a 1 gallon bowl. I change the water once a week. We have only had him for about 6 weeks.... and all of a sudden he has taken a turn for the worst.
He hasn't been eating at all. The last time he ate anything was about 3 days ago... even then he took one bite and was swimming around like crazy and bumping into everything. And also when he took that bite it came out his gills... so I am not sure if he got anything at all.
His coloring which was a beautiful vibrant purple/blue color is no longer. He looks grayish. His fins are pretty clamped too... they aren't fluffy like usual. I noticed a few days ago he had red patches on his face too. He just lays at the bottom and doesn't do anything. Sometimes he will swim at the top... but he is not active... and won't eat. He has been acting like this for about 2 weeks.
I went to the local pet store and they told me to give him betta revive. Which I have been with full water changes the last 2 days but there is no difference. I know it's only been 2 days but I am starting to get a little panicked.
Is it possible he has a bacterial infection or something?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
