Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed?
How has your betta fish's behavior changed?
She seems more lethargic than normal. She has been hanging out near her heater and hasn't been flirting with Gandalf through the glass of their tanks like she usually does. She refuses to eat. We did manage to get one freeze-dried bloodworm in her a few minutes ago. She seems to have perked up a little since this.
When did you start noticing the symptoms?
2-3 days ago.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how?
No. I figured it would be best to come here first.
Does your fish have any history of being ill?
Not at all.
How old is your fish (approximately)?
5 months from when I got her. Not sure how old she was before that.
It's very possible I'm just being paranoid, but I take no chances when it comes to my fish. Those clear spots on her tail have always been there. She does not look any different than she normally does.
