Hey, I have a DT Betta named Jesus, and he is approaching a full year since I bought him, so it would be like a birthday for him. Anyway, lately, he seems to be floating to the top, he swims okay, still has his cheerful personality when I first bought him, but right now I want to get him to start swimming like he did when he started off with me. Sometimes I see him struggling a bit to swim to the lower levels, even using plants or decorations as a way to stay down, yet when he stops swimming, he tilts to the side. What would cause this and can it be cured?
