I know I just got him, but does this sound like Dropsy?
I'm really sad...my new Betta Amethyst seems like he has dropsy, from what I've read in other threads on this site.
He's been sitting on the bottom, breathing rapidly, going up to the surface only every once and a while, then quickly going back down to where he was. His scales are sort of sticking out...I think you call it pinecone-ing or something.
My mom gave me some food that's supposed to help flush out intestinal parasites...but I'm not sure it'll work. I think I might have waited too long...he's been acting this way since yesterday.
I'm just wondering if there's anything else I can do to help him? Thanks you guys, you've all helped me so much since I've joined this site.
