bavent been able to find my betta since last night, it took about 10 minutes of removing stuff from his tank to find him and he was laying in the gravel on his side not swimming. I took him out of tank so I would could see if he would swim and he didn't move. He's still breathing. Whay can I do??
Update; Biggie died over that night, however he had yellow sloptches and the scales on his head were raised so I think he has an infection.

My ammonia was high was I did q 75% water change like 2 days ago and it went down to 25ppm. I know its still high so I've been using ammonia down. My ph is 7.4 (working on getting that lower) nitrates was 0ppm and nitrates is 20ppm i do believe but I have plants that should help lower it. This was after the water change.

You need to do a large WC with a proper water conditioner, like Seachem Prime or API Tap Water Conditioner, ASAP

He is suffering from ammonia poisoning

Keep performing large waterchanges until the ammonia is at 0

Also I found him under a decoration he played in and my other fish seem to be doing fine. I did a 75% water change like 2 days ago
