Saix has gone completely blind, so I put him in his one gallon so he can feel his way around better. But he can't find his food, and there's hardly any poo if any at all when I clean the tank out, just uneaten food. He's gotten so skinny, but he's not dying. He's too stubborn to die. I don't know what to do anymore. I hate watching him suffer, but I can't bring myself to kill him... What should I do, if I can do anything?
I don't know if any of this will help, but here:
What size is your tank? He was in a 2.5 gallon but is now in the 1 gallon.
What temperature is your tank? 75
Does your tank have a filter? No.
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No.
Is your tank heated? Yes.
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? None.
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Pellets, flakes, and bloodworms.
How often do you feed your betta fish? Once a day.
How often do you perform a water change? Now that he's in the 1 gallon, it's whenever his tank gets too dirty, so every few days or so.
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 100%
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Conditioner and Aquarium salt
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters?
Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? When I first got him he was peach, now he's covered in black splotches and his eyes have turned black and he won't respond to moving objects anymore so I've concluded that he's blind.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? He just lays there most of the time.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? A few months ago one of his eyes turned black and he couldn't see out of it, now it's the other too.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Just a few granules of aquarium salt.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? He had ammonia burn for a while, and possibly fin rot.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I got him in November, and he hasn't grown much.
