Alot of you have seen my Delta Betta Quincey before...he is one of my more colorful bettas. He is always very active and happy. Swimming around his half of his tank whom he shares the tank with Sherlock, my other betta. Its divided. Quincey and Sherlock have never had a problem with each other. They'll flare from time to time at each other but other then that they seem to care less. And Quincey is always in a "happy" mood swimming around and greeting me when I walk over. But today...he's...lathargic...just laying around on the bottom of his side of his tank behind his terra cotta pot. I'm not sure what is wrong...water perameters are as follow, Ammonia-0, Nitrite-0, Nitrate-15. I just tested the water...thinking oh no something must be wrong. But...Sherlock is swimming around like usual happy to have me near the tank. Yet Quincey is..."blah." I have noticed a few different things. One, Quincey has been slowly changing coloring over the last...about month and a half. His fins are slowing turning a very nice redish coloring.
I figured this was just some Marbleing in his genes changing. I wasnt to worried about it. But its just his fins doing it. It doesnt look like any type of blood related problem so I figured his coloring was just mixing up some. The other thing is last night he was fine swimming around normally, but this morning my Dad is working outside my room on the house making a lot of banging noise sence 9 this morning. I think that the sound viberations could be bothering him some. I'm not sure whats going on, but it is stressing me out. Quincey is one of my closest bettas due to his personality and coloring I'd hate to lose him from something I didnt think of so I posted this thread asking for any other insight I might of missed. And as always Thank You everyone.
