Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? He looks a little thin to me. Some of the scales on his head seem to have lost some of their color, as well. Though, there hasn't really been a significant change in appearance.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? It's not much of a change, but he seems more lethargic than usual. He's spent almost the entire day resting on one of the leaves of his fake plant that's pretty close to the surface. He's not really eating much. In fact, I put two blood worms right in front of him and he just ignored them. One of them I wiggled around in the water to try to entice him but he still ignored it. He's not usually an especially active fish, but he seems especially sluggish today.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? After his water change today
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? I haven't really done anything other than try to get him to eat some food by placing FD bloodworms and pellets right in front of him.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? No, just unusually shy
How old is your fish (approximately)? I've had him for about 2 weeks and he was in a new shipment of fish that had arrived at the pet store the night before I bought him, so I'd guess not too old. I'm not sure what age they are when the pet store stocks them, though.
It may be absolutely nothing, but I'm a little paranoid.
