need help with sick betta. Swim Bladders?
Ok. so I have a sick betta. has been for several weeks. he is very lethargic, flouts on his side like a dead fish is not pooping a lot and has trouble swimming to the bottom of the tank.
I thought it was swim bladders so I didn't feed him for a few days and gave him a quarter of a pea. no poop and no change. so I tried again a few days later. no change.
I read online that swim bladder can also be caused by internal parasites or bacterial infections. Should I start treating him for that? What medication should I use?
