Hello everyone,
I have had this betta for 3 months now.
For the past 3 weeks, my betta has been extremely lazy and inactive.
I have seen it resting on its side at the bottom or at tbe top.
On the recommendation of the shop form where I bought it, I have done methyleme blue and aquarium salt treatment for a week now. I have also added some Blackwater.
1017277

The betta is better but still not as active as it used to be.
I have ordered a bigger tank with a filter but I don't want to lose him till it arrives.

Any help would be appreciated.
