Swim bladder disease in betta?


Recommended Posts

This is the second fish this has happened to in my daughter’s tank. I’m wondering if it’s swim bladder? Constipation? The area around his anus seems red and inflamed, but I’m not sure if that’s normal. This tank isn’t fully cycled yet, however, it’s been running for about 6 weeks. This fish was introduced last week..

water parameters:

ph 8.0

ammonia .25 (I added prime)

nitrites and nitrates 0

alkalinity 180

chlorine 0

i only have strips that test hardness, but they say it’s between 150 and 300

water temp 78-80
