Help please betta lethargic

1Bettagal

Please help us my betta is lethargic and keeps going to the heater. I have been changing his 2.5 gallon filtered tank every night and adding aquarium salt to treat fin rot. Tonight he is just hanging around the heater. I know something is wrong and I am sad and scared for Chadley. He is eating but something is definitely wrong. I think he pooped yesterday,he looks a little bloated.Should I give him a frozen pea? Thank you

Feed him daphnia, it’s a great laxative for fish. You can also soak it in garlic to make it more appetizing and as an immunity boost.
What’s your temp and water parameters? Filter? If his water is too cold, he may be sitting by it to warm up. That would also explain the bloat- betta digestive system slows when the water is cold.

Your aquarium is too small for a betta. This may cause him stress. It's also harder to balance smaller aquariums. Upgrade him to a 5 gallon soon. Fill out the emergency template and give pics.
