    I recently got back from from a 3 day trip. I went to check on my 15 gal and saw how the fish were doing. The guppys are fine how ever the betta is very inactive. I feed the fish and the guppies ate except the betta. She seems to lost some color and uss refusing to eat. I did a water change and watcher her for an hour. She is just laying at the bottom only going up to the glass when im near. Any ideas??

    I forgot to test water before water change

    After water change results

    0ppm ammonia

    0ppm nitrite

    10 - 20 ppm nitrate

    Your betta looks completely healthy and your tank perimeters are great. Could it possibly be age? The guppies could be stressing the betta out, keep an eye out for the betta flaring.
