My CT Betta, Dante, has been acting sick. I got him for Christmas, and he is my first betta, I don't want to lose him. On Christmas, he was acting normal, nothing was wrong. The 26th I did a full water change, because he had been in his tank since the 23rd, and I detected .5 ammonia in the water. That night, he was fine, swimming around, flaring at his food, the like. Yesterday, he was dramatically different. He was pacing in the morning, and later just floating around, apathetically. This morning I woke up to find him just laying at the bottom of the tank. Not dead, just laying there. What's up? As I said before, I love him and don't wan't to lose him...
