I just bought 2 male betta's this past Sunday (MDW) with my boyfriend, did the water conditioning and waited to transfer them both the night after. Mine (blue one) seems to be doing perfectly fine (eating like a pig, actively swimming) but my boyfriend's isn't doing so well on the other hand. He hasn't eaten since Tuesday night, he swims to the top and stares at the food and spits it back out and he kind of just leans on the tank floor. We housed both of them both in separate 1/2 gallon tanks, usually I'm the one with dying fishes, what could be wrong with his and what can i buy to treat him? He looks like he's dying!
