I think my betta is sick! Please help!
I have a wonderful Betta named Horatio. I have had him for around 6 months, but of course I don't know how old he was when I got him from the store. Originally, he had the smallest tank from the store, but now I have upgraded him to another one. (although it is still not 2.5 gallons...I am a college student, so space is imperative). In his new tank, he had two trees. He seemed fine, but then he started eating less and hanging at the top. Also, his front two fins have gotten brown and his fins are shredding (I removed the trees after doing a pantyhose test I found online...I will probably put a cave or something else in). I thoroughly clean his tank once a week, although I do not have a heater (I need to get one). He also used to dig at the rocks and lie between the trees and the rocks, but he doesn't do either of those anymore (before I removed the trees). I feed him flakes, but I am going to start feeding him pellets.
