I really don't think he'll make it. I have no idea what to do to save him and I've just got to, I love him to death. He's been very lethargic and staying near the top of the bowl for a while. I moved him to the sick fish tank, just smaller so he can be closer to the top and not struggle.
I've taken some videos of my poor baby, will link/attach. Ignore the fan in the background, sorry!
I'm hoping it's just a case swim bladder (not a good thing, but better than equilibrium problems...) since he's having trouble swimming downwards.
I recently moved away to college and lost ALL my fish supplies / have literally five dollars to my name, so my poor fish Weasley is roughing it. No filter, no heater.. But I've known plenty of betta to live 2-5 years without any fancy things. I just typically have all the best things for them, but I really can't afford it. I brought him from home (before I moved away to college) because it was bring him in a sack or let him get flushed. Obviously I wasn't going to let that happen so... yeah, but looks like I'm not keeping that from happening.
No kit to test the water, just some reliable betta water conditioner and a decent owner.
1 Litter tank, had some living plants that died from not enough sun light. Can only clean his tank every other week or the RA gets pissed. (not even supposed to have a fish). Tank is always room temp. though...
diet: 2-3 pellets a day, the package says five but that seems a bit much...
