I've had my betta fish for over a year, she's always been healthy.
Today she started seeming like she was problems breathing (gills moving abnormally), and she was in the bottom of the tank. Every once in a while she swims really quickly to the top, and then sinks all the way to the bottom always immediately. She is not responding to me and doesn't seem to want food. Please help.
