Gott write this quick my Betta is just sitting at the bottom of his tank and not moving. Don't know what it is maybe constipation. Been like that since I changed his water this morning. Please help ASAP!
what is the temperature of the tank? since you think he's a bit constipated, which sounds like it could be a possibility, try boiling some peas, take the skin off one of them and feed it to him. automatic cure for constipation!
Well last time I checked temp was like 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Maybe that's cold. The tank is 0.75 gallons, smaller than yours, but I'll be upgrading to 10g soon. No additives, I feed him Wardley Betta pellets, Betta-Min, Tetra Bloodworms. Occasionally, Zoo-Med Betta Bloodworms, Mysis, and Daphnia (sometimes). He has no mates, and I normally change water weekly.
Hope that helps!
Please reply ASAP!
Oh! that is too cold! That's like making you stand outside in snowy weather in shorts and a teeshirt. Can you move him? The kitchen is probably the warmest place in your house, the water temp should be at least "room temperature" and even at that he may be lethargic but don't go pouring warm water on him. Wrap the tank in the towel and put him some where warm. The water temperature should be lukewarm to the touch at minimum (which is cool water, but not enough to be considered "cold" while your hands are warm). Numerically, it should be 75+. Optimal temperature is 78-82.
I'm not sure if that's why your betta is not doing so well but I'm sure it is playing a role in it.
No Additives? Does that mean you're not treating your water with a dechlorinator before you use it?
Water if definitely too cold but if you're not preparing your water, the chlorine will be very harmful to your fish.
