Chaos_Corrupter Posted August 23, 2020 Share Posted August 23, 2020 My friend just got into the aquarium hobby so I'm posting on here for her. She just got a new betta about a week ago. It's in a 3.5 gallon halfmoon tank with 1 kuhli loaches and a couple plants. Since she got her betta, it has been slowly going sideways whenever it's staying still. It swims fine and actively goes for food but as soon as it stops swimming, it slowly tips over and floats at the top. I think it's some sort of swim bladder issue but I'm not sure what the cause is. It was fine in the petco cup when she bought it. The tank should be cycled but just to keep water clean, she's been doing small 10% water changes everyday. She fasted the betta for 3 days and it sort of got better, more of a 45 degree than a full sideways, so she gave it one pellet and it went back to fully sideways. Other than the floating, the fish look healthy. Any help would be appreciated. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
