View Full Version : Is there something wrong with my betta?

When my Betta swims he sometimes jerks his head from side to side real quick. Could something be wrong with him? He is eating fine and acting okay but I just thought I would ask just in case something is going on that I am not aware of.

Anything that ain't normal usually means something is wrong. Aquarium salt and stress coat.

Nevermind. I think he is just seeing his reflection sometimes because he only does that when he is facing the front of the aquarium.

Yea, may be flaring. You need something on the outside like paint or a background, this can cause major stress leading to a possible death.
