well maybe you should clean him out if hes in a small bowl if not do a water change, my bettas do that when they are dirty.

sick betta

i've cleaned out his bowl and put him into another larger one with a filter and a heater. He's still laying around on the bottom. It's like his tail half can't float. It seems to act as dead weight when he's trying to get to the surface, which is only about once or twice a day now.
