HI Guys.

My friends Betta finly was low energy today and one of the tettras in the tank has passed away. I came over and tested the results.

Ph swung from <6 to 7.4 over 3 or 4 days.
Ammonia ~0.25ppm
Nitrite ~0.25ppm
Nitrate <5ppm

Water at 28°C

Added wonder tonic and salt 5 min before video.

He's started swimming erratically for a few seconds then not moving

I'd give him a water change. In fact a succession of small ones. He really doesn't look good at all.

Betas don't handle salt well. Your water probably need some KH to prevent pH swings. pH swings that large are deadly to fish.. also, the tank isn't cycled.
