Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? I just got him. I have been eying him for close to a month now. His water of course just got progressively worse and had the brown cloudy crap going on. I noticed that when he was in his cup, he swam around at the top like when I've seen fish suffocate to death. He swims just fine, but any time he comes up to the air he does this bobbing around the surface as if someone was choking him. Other than that he seems like a decently healthy fish. Swims fine, still clamped fins, but that's to be expected for a bit.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? I didn't notice him doing it before in the cup.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Yesterday when I bought him.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how?nope unless stream coat counts. I have never hear of this so I have no idea.
Does your fish have any history of being ill?
