BAT Posted April 11 Share Posted April 11 Hi All, My betta named Cutie is having trouble. For the past two days he has been having trouble swimming straight and staying at the top of the tank. Initially I thought swim bladder due to constipation and fed daphnia. Day 2, he became more lethargic and I tested water and there was 10+ nitrate so I did a water change (no nitrite). That helped only a tiny bit. He was hiding in his cave and laying on the ground and not eating. I thought this could be dropsy and might have convinced myself there was pineconing. So I started Maracyn 2 and Kanaplex (added to water) and started an air stone. Today he is less lethargic but still having trouble swimming upright and feeding aggressively. He now spends some time in his floating log and then some time in his cave. water temp is 80F. any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
