    I’ve had my betta Toby for over a year now, i’m not sure how old he was when I bought him but he was fully grown so i estimated about a year old.

    Buford hasn't eaten anything in 4 days, his color is fading on his sides, he barely moves, he stays at the top of the tank, he seems to be dying.
