Hi there, I bought a betta fish two days ago. He is in a 5 gallon tank, we used water conditioner (the people at petco recommend it due to the water quality here), and we let the tank filter run for a day and let the water heat up, also there are three plastic plants in his tank, and he is eating regularly so far. The only thing I'm worried about is he stays at the surface of the water most of the time. Once I put the plants in he moves around more but still at the surface. Could he simply just be 'lazy"? He hasn't shown much energy since I've had him. I also bought a second betta fish and he's in a separate tank, he has been swimming around a lot and checking out his tank but tonight I noticed he was laying on the gravel. I don't have plants in there yet and I plan on putting some in soon.
Update.. There are now tiny black dots on his fins. There are also holes appearing out of nowhere, in the middle of his top fin. I didn't originally think that it was fin rot but now I am not so sure. Both tanks had a full change almost a week ago. There is nothing that seems to be wrong with Bootsy. Both tanks were changed and treated the same way. We are about to do a full tank change in Shine's tank, putting him in some of Bootsys water in the meantime, since I believe his may be contaminated. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. This is happening at an alarming rate! I do not want to lose my fish.
Fish tanks and aquariums are quite amazing.
