Betta:Not Eating. Stays at Bottom. Doesn't Flare.
ok, so ill give you some background so you can help me figure this out. please and thanks.
*i brought him home from petco.
*he is a crowntail betta.
*i had him in a 1 gal. triangle tank. no filter.
-he started acting lethargic, always hanging towards the bottom, didn't make bubblenests anymore-
[he got ick, so we treated him, and all better,outside]
*my boyfriend bought him a 1.5 gallon square aquariam with a whisper filter, and a mini heater. he seemed to like it, he would sit and play with his new unusual current, and go down to the bottom to sleep.
*his water stays at about 78-80 all the time.
*his tank is clean.
* i took his filter out for a few days, figuring that must be it, having been used to living without one, he did one lap around the tank, and back down to hiding.
*feeding time, he comes up to the top, almost excited, takes a nipple, spits it out, and goes back to hiding.
he's been like this for 4 days.
i've had him for 3-4 months.
*i read on another discussion to try little pieces of frozen pea. he nibbled, and went back down to his hiding spot, on the ground behind his plant.
*i just put his filter back in today, having that with or without made no difference and it keeps it cleaner.
i dont want to lose him. anyone have any suggestions?
