    Default Sick Beta

    I have a male beta fish at work here and he has been quite sick for the past week or so.

    I seems as though he is having trouble swimming and or spends 95% of the day sitting on the bottom of his bowl.

    When he does go for a swim or comes up to the top to eat, it is like he is really struggling...

    Any suggestions??

    how big is the tank he is in. I have a small cup like the ones you buy them in from the store, I put the sickies in it since they don't have to swim as much. I treated it with a fungus eliminator since it mentions bloat and swim bladder disorders...mine had a habit of swimming fine but floating on his side when he rested. After he cleared up he graduated to a bigger tank.
