my betta is sick ill explain. i put a thin 3d background as a tank divider because one of my bettas wouldnt stop flaring at the other.i drilled holes so water could flow. i noticed i missed some pices that the drill left still attached to the background maybe he ate part of the background or maybe i just over feed idk. he is defiantly constipated he has been fasting three days still hasn't pooped his belly is still a little swollen seems to possibly have swim bladder disease idk.I have tried feeding him peas and even tried a pellet he was pecking at it a lot like he really wanted it but he is having trouble eating it, seems like he cant open his mouth although I have seen him yawn a few times. He scoots around on his belly alot when he goes up for air he skims the water like he having trouble breathing then he basically falls head first down and almost falls on his side , his gills seem to be sticking out further then normal. what could this be problem be?
Ricky is pretty responsive poor guy still keeps laying to where he is looking at me and trys to wiggle.
Ricky is in a half gallon betta tank half way full inside our 20 gallon tank I have a drain to take water out and a baster to put water from the 20 gallon and fresh water in frequently and keeping the bottom clean after feeding peas.
I have been using prime, stress guard, vita- chem and very very tiny aq salt. first post on this site been on others but figured i had more bettas than any thing else so might as well come here. ill update my profile sometime soon. aslo i know all basics, tanks are cycled ext. i also have a video if someone lets me know how to post it. thank you Lee
