    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I am pretty positive my fish's swim bladder is broken and it is breaking my heart. Basically, he can't really swim well anymore. He's kind of stuck in a vertical position and it takes a ton of effort for him to get anywhere. I know he's miserable, but I don't know what to do about it. Help!

  7. Swim bladder problem, need help!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Lately my betta has been laying on his side at the bottom of his tank all the time. He hasn't been pooping much so my guess is that he's constipated from me accidentally over feeding him.
