Betta floating at top
Hello there. I think I might have a problem with my Betta fish. I have had him for about a year now. I regularly clean his tank and do water changes. However, in the last week, he's just kind of been floating around at the surface of the water. He will swim to the bottom of the tank, but as soon as he stops waving his fins, he just bobs right back up to the top. Sometimes, it even seems that he is rotating onto his side and resting along the wall. Is there something wrong with him? thanks!

5 gal QT
Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in
