weird condition...PLZ HELP
So I've had my betta, vash, for abt 2 years now and I love him sooo much. When I first got him he had swim bladder twice. So I fasted him for like 2-3 days and it cleared. I know it was swim bladder cuz he had extreme difficulty swimming far under the water, he looked bloated, and would chill at the top... often on his side due to his bloating.
Well he hasn't had it in over a year... but like 3 weeks ago he showed symptoms of it. trouble swimming to the bottom and chilling at the top. But he doesnt seem bloated or stay on his side at all. Is there anything else that could cause this similar behavior... like possibly... i hate to say this... a growth? I see no changes in his scales or shape at all...
I tried fasting him for 2-3 days but then since nothing changed I fed him because I was afraid he'd starve. I've tried that maybe 3-4 times in the past 3 weeks.
I was told to feed him the innerds of a pea... but bettas are meat eaters for the most part so i'm afraid this might hurt his digestive track...
