Please help asap


Okay I have had my fish for awhile and He is active I admit that I have most likely overfed him and lately bloodworms but not excessively. Well he ended up with a bump on his back near fin and its been too long he is ot moving anymore and I dont kno what to do. well as i decided i couldnt let him suffer anylonger I looked closer and what I couldnt see in the tank is he is extremely bloated except hes been sick for awhile and i haven't fed him. when i do he does not eat. I do not have peas. What should I do. I think the right thing to do is let him go I feel bad for him suffering this long. but i love him so much and am asking any advice..eh im sure i cant do anything though?? pease respond soon I will be letting him go today probably.

MAY GOD BE WITH HIM.

Any white stringy poo? Could be Hexamita or nematode worms if you were feeding live bloodworms...

Are his scales sticking out? If so, you're looking at dropsy which is very hard to treat.

Here's a picture to show what the scales look like when they're sticking out. You'd view the fish from the top just like this picture. If the scales are sticking out, then the fish definitely has dropsy. http://www.cutehomepets.com/wp-conte...ish-dropsy.jpg

what a sad first post... bloodworms i'm thinking it's a betta. if it were me i would do a 80% or more water change with conditioned water and add a dose of antifungal and antibacterial treatment. dont feed him for 24 hours and just see if he snaps out of it. good luck kiddo
