Hello everyone! I’m new to the site and hopefully I’m doing this correctly. I have a quick question about my baby betta. When I first got her about 8 weeks ago she was very lively. Now she’s rather lethargic and does swim much. She eats whenever I feed her and she swims a little whenever I come into the room. Today I noticed that most of her fins are clamped and she is possibly losing fins? She also has developed these black lines under her stomach and I don’t know what it could be. She lives in a 5.5 gallon tank with a heater and filter. I usually turn on the filter once a day for a while due to the fact that the filters current is to strong for her. Here are some pictures of her. Because I was freaking out I just started a full water change/tank cleaning. I keep her in a small container while I clean and give her a lot of food so excuse the mess but here she is! I am still learning how to take care of her so please avoid negative comments I already know I need help hence coming here. Advice would be appreciated thank you!!
