and yeah, the "solution" is like a liquid that we put in the water when we clean it so that it can prepare (?) the water betta's, I guess.
and her fins just look kind of ratty too.
If it were me (and it's not) I wouldn't feed her anymore than two pellets in the am, two pellets in the pm. That is all I feed my betta when giving a meal of pellets. 10 to 13 pellets is WAY too much. Overfeeding a betta is the surest way for a swimbladder disorder to present itself. The excess food and cooler temp is most likely why your fish is so lethargic.
Drama- you beat me to the post! :)
