I think my Betta is dying

Kristennn143

Hi everyone I’m pretty sure my beta fish is dying and idk why. A couple days ago I noticed his fins looking a little haggard and he isn’t swimming around like he usually is. I bought some bettafix and it doesn’t seem to be helping at all. I did notice what looks like little bugs swimming around which is new.

Change the water and add a very little sea salt in water...This works for me.

Welcome to Fishlore.

The bugs might be seed shrimp or another harmless critter.

Hold back the bettafix and other meds for now.

The issue looks quite far gone. Please use the emergency template linked here.

Please don’t add marine salt directly to a freshwater tank. Epsom salt is the better salt for treating fish, but even that shouldn’t be directly added to the main tank either.

He will occasionally swim to the top but then go back down. I hate to see the little guy suffer
