Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Since I brought him home a few months ago, he's chronically lazy.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Not changed but. Unless I'm moving my figner by the glass or feeding he lays on the bottom of the tank, on leaves, ect. He will wedge himself head down in crevices and just stay still, looking dead. He's a full mask dragon with white scaling and Red Fins so it's har dto judge if he's pale or not.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? When I first purchased him, thought he just needed to get used to the tank
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? I've tried QT cups with aq salt, tried more frequent water changed, less frequent, fasting, more food, less food, only frozen. No change.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Since I bought him.
How old is your fish (approximately)? Well I've ha him for like three months now, got him at a pet store.
Honestly I'm getting kind of fed up/worried about Zariel. The longer he stays sick, the more I worry about the other fish being in with him. He's got no deformities aside form a lump of flesh by his tail (but he's a doubletail PK and I've read that they sometimes have those buldges). He's a gorgious fish. He just.... does nothing aside from make me think he's dead 90% of the time. He perks right up for feeding, though he's not terribly great and grabbing his food, he still eats. He's never been 'ill' aside form a run in with some bad gravel when I firt got him that caused him to nearly die and roll upsidedown. I don't know if this did some perminant damage or what. The fish living with him have been perfectly fine (the other males)
