New member here and need some help!
Almost a month ago I bought a new baby betta fish
. He is in a 1 gallon tank with heater (water temp around 74 degrees ). For the first few weeks he was very happy and always swimming around his tank. Yesterday though I noticed that he was laying on top on his rock, just not acting like himself. When I put my finger up the to tank he swam around very fast, went to the top, took a breath, then free fell back to the bottom on his tank. Along with this weird behavior he seems to be breathing heavily and it looks like he is strugling while swimming. Today I changed his water and added BettaSafe but he still seems to be very lazy. I fell in love with him the day I saw him at the pet store, and I am very worried about him
. I could use all the help I could get.
P.S I do have a 15 gallon tank ( with heater, filter, and light ) that I was planning on moving him to once he got older, but should I move him into it sooner. Is this tank to small.
