Fishkeeping7777

Hi noticing this for about a week
He’s gotten skinnier me thinking because of the new diet he’s also fading thinking it could be the marble Gene today it looks like he’s struggling to swim what do I do I don’t have his test kit stuff right now i’m so exhausted I’ll test it later but what is wrong with him I did wake him up from a nap though could that be it but it looks like he can barely swim

I have another fish in there with him she’s fine
She does have a white doll on top of her head she has been having this I think for a long time though it never caused a problem is gotten a little bit worse I think it might be appealed scale she always gets stuck in place

Could you please fill out the emergency template?

What did you change in his diet?
What kind of fish is the female fish? She could be picking on him and causing him stress, especially if she'd also a betta.

If he's struggling to swim to the surface, you could drop the water level down so he can get up to breathe easier.

His symptoms look a lot like stress
Are the two betta fish in the same tank? that would definitely cause him stress

If possible, please test the nitrates as high nitrates can cause stress and if they get high enough, poisoning.
Also, betta fish are carnivores so i would stay clear of feeding them veggies
