Hey guys, I have been a member on here for a while, but I am not a frequent poster. I hate to start a thread on a topic that may be beaten to death but I am stumped on my problem. So here it goes.
I got this male halfmoon plakat betta about two months ago. When I first got him, he was happy as ever making bubble nests like they were nobody's business and eating on a normal basis. Sadly, now he has stopped eating for the past couple days and I cannot for the life of me figure out why. I have noticed that he has lost some of the coloring in his scales and fins, which no doubt has to do with the lack of eating. He has no visible signs of any fungus or bacterial infection. I changed the aquascape of this tank about three weeks ago, which is a plausible reason why ( he may be stressed), but its been three weeks now, you'd think he'd be over it by now. I am worried because if he doesn't eat soon, he may die. So here are some credentials on the tank to clarify any questions:
PH: 6.5 ( Which is a little on the low side and I am now slowly bringing it up)
Ammonia: 0 ppm
Temperature: 79 F
Tank mates: 3 Panda Corydoras
Foods: Omega one betta buffet pellets, freeze dried blood worms, frozen blood worms
Ill attach a photo of the tank to see if the new layout may be unsuitable.
