I joined last night so I could search through some threads. Frank Sinatra, my betta, lives in a 2 gallon bowl in my kitchen. I ordered him a 4 gallon aquarium but last Friday was hit by a $1000 ACL surgery for one of my dogs, so so I cancelled it til next payday. But he's lived in this bowl since November, I change the water weekly, and he has seemed happy and healthy. LAst night, I saw he was laying on his side at the top of the bowl. I tapped the bowl and he swam, but immediately floated back up to the top, on his side. I took him out of the bowl and put him in the little container he came in, with new fish water (I keep 2 gallons ready with fish water at all time). He'd just lay there, on his side at the top, then thrash around, then be still. Honestly, I thought he'd be dead by this morning. But this morning he was upright and swimming around like normal. He ate, and just looks normal, except skinny, and I don't recall him being skinny prior to yesterday. So what now? What could it have been and can I clean his bowl and put him back in it? Any thing I should be doing?
