Hello everyone! I'm new to Betta fish raising and have been reading through these forums to help with raising Jim Hawkins, my Betta fish.
Last night he appeared to have Fin Rot and I started treating him with Fungus Clear today.
Normally, he is on the bottom of the tank. When I first had him, he had a little bowl with no heater. After about a week or two, he just lay at the bottom. The water was cold and after reading through a few topics, purchased a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater and thermometer. The temperature is set to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. For a few days, he was zipping around the tank making bubble nests.
About a week or so later, he would go back to just being at the bottom of the tank. And since then Jim has been doing that. He comes up for food, air, and sometimes to nip my finger.
I'm not totally sure what's going on with him. My mom suggested that I get him a few tank buddies to keep company. My gut tells me it's something else that's causing it.
Not really sure where to go from here and I'm not too crazy about going to Petco or another store for advice. Doesn't always seem too helpful.
Thanks in advance :)
