my betta is not eating, spending most time at the bottom
i a few months old, male Betta, named Jose Luis Rodriguez. He usually has a great appetite. Recently I added a filter and aquarium salt as suggested by the pet shop rep. Before that, Jose Luiz was turning white and his bowl water was getting yellow too often. Since I added the filter, his color has returned; however, he has been refusing to eat and his tail is always closed.
He goes for the food, but spits it out immediately. He is also spending most of his time at the bottom. Before he liked sleeping upright, now he is just lying flat in the rocks. Also, before the filter he was able to swallow a whole warm, now he just picks at it. I wonder if he is having a hard time opening his mouth. It seems like he is loosing weight!
Does anyone has any idea what's happening to my lovely Jose Luis?
