    Exclamation Something wrong with betta fish!

    One of my betta fish Swimmer seemed dead! He was not moving at all in the tank and his little fins (that almost always keep moving) did not move! When I push my finger up to the tank they always respond by moving away or something! This time he just sat there. Do betta fish act weird before they die? Help me ASAP!

    Thanks so much!

    How is you other fish doing, could it be the water temperature or lighting?

    No, not sure...he's never done that before. Hope it does not happen again. Any other questions?
