I have NO idea what is wrong with my poor Betta Sammy. He has been sick for around 2 weeks but is still holding on, and I just feel like he has symptoms for almost every single disease.
He lives in a 1 gallon tank with a filter. He went from very active, to floating around at the top of the tank. I initially thought he had dropsy because he started becoming bloated behind his gills, so I expected it to get worse and then he would die. But he hasn't gotten anymore bloated and his scales aren't really even "pine-coning" he just looks a little swollen there.
He also recently started getting this silver/metallic kind of crust around his gills. I have no idea what that is. I don't have any stats on my water, but I do try to keep it above 75 degrees.
Any time I try to give him food, he'll try to eat it, but then spit it back out. He hasn't really eaten in almost two weeks. I honestly have no idea how he is alive, but I'm not giving up until he's gone, or I at least have an answer.
So can someone, ANYONE, please please help me try to figure out what is wrong with my poor baby and maybe save him?
