    Lethargic Betta

    Hi! My betta was acting weird when I came home Thursday night. He was hiding and laying on the bottom, which is fairly normal for him, but it didn’t seem right.

    Ich or Fungus?

    I thought it was ich; have been treating for 5 days at 85 degrees, water changes (not much); two of my fish have had the spots with no changes; from what I read about the ich life cycle I thought these spots would have gone away as they drop into the water but they are still there. Could it be...
