Betta Swallowed a Rock!!!!! HELP!!!!!!
My poor betta Toothbrush (don't ask) swallowed one of the rocks off the bottom of the tank a couple days ago and I'm new at this so I don't know what to do and why he did that. :?: He's still alive but he's definitely sleeping a lot more.... WHAT DO I DO!!!????!!!???!! :?:

do you know for sure that he swallowed the rock? or does he just have a puffy belly and you're assuming so?

The bulge is not quite at his belly it's more like at his throat. It appeared overnight so we're pretty sure it's not a tumor....

Would you be able to get a photo of your fish? I find it very unlikely tht he swallowed a rock, a photo would help us identify the problem a bit better.

Hey Kender,
i can't help your problem, But, i think that toothbrush is a great name.

It did not eat a rock, it knows it is not food. Its like saying we ate stones cause they were on our plate.

Pictures would really help us, I'm positive we can ID it with a pic.
