my betta looks very bloated.....
my son's betta is very bloated & fat he is slow moving, this isn't like him, he looks sick and wont eat & dosen't swim around much any more, is he sick?
this just happened in the last few weeks.
can anyone please help?
Sounds like bloat. He may be constipated. If you are feeding him bloodworms, change his diet to flake food. Freeze-dried critters like bloodworms, daphnia, and the like can lead to constipation, even death in fishes. Blodworms should be given sparingly, 1-2 times per week. The basic diet should be a quality flake food.
Does indeed sound like bloat. I second herefishy's suggestions for the change of diet. Try also feeding him a shelled pea. If you can get him to eat it this is usually good for relieving constipation. Or you could try epsom salts which also can be helpful.
wow thank you very much, what should i do just put the epsom salts in the water? how much shoul i put in?
we have had him for about 1 year and always feed him floating mini pellets for betta's.
