My beta fish has not eaten in almost a month
This fish actually belongs to my 4 year old and it's her first pet. I have had beta fish my whole life and never experienced one like Silly Clown. He refused pellets when we first got him about 6 months ago but after reading the forums on this site I got him blood worms and he has thrived ever since. However now he will not and has not eaten in almost a month. He shows no interest in food at all and sits at the bottom of his 5 gallon tank staring at paintings (I switch them out but he has a couple of favs). He comes up for air but he seems weighted down when he does. I have done everything I can think of but still no change in his condition and I fear the end is near. Does anyone know of some way I can save him? I have never had a beta live less than 3-4 years. Please help.
