First, I am sorry I have been posting so much about my betta the past few months. He has been battling disease after disease and I freak out when anything seems the least bit wrong with him...
The reason i'm posting this is because, All day today he has been acting really lethargic and clamped. But, he is showing no other symptoms. He's not pale, not bloated, no fuzzy patches, nothing.
So, i'm wondering. Last night I woke him up about four times. Once with a Flashlight, once actually turning on the hood light and the other two times just looking at his tank. I didn't mean too, but I put in a new heater and I was making sure it didn't overheat (I worry a lot).
So, is he just tired or is he really sick?
