i have had my betta for abt 5 months now... i don't have him in a tank (i know, the horrors!!) but i do have him in a big bowl. He's always been a really happy fish, likes to have his water changed every 2 days... would actually freak out in the direction of the food container until i fed him nad made huge bubble nests all the time.... but for the past few weeks, no nests and i have tried three types of food, he just won't eat... once in a while he will swim around fast but tonight he has his fins pressed together and keeps floating toward the top.. he tries to swim and has some trouble.. how can you tell if they are just depressed or if i should help him out in case he is suffering? i love my fish, i don't want him gone but i don't want him hurting either.
