hello, I need help immediately as to save my upside down laying lifeless betta. My husband noticed a few days ago that my betta looked un well and very lethargic. Today i tried to wake him when feeding him and he wouldnt wake and continued to stay sideways almost upside down at the bottom of the tank. I moved the bubbles to try and wake him and he would just spin round and round in them and float back down sideways or upside down. I did a little research..quite a bit actually and removed him from tank and put him into a smaller tank for now with clean water ..about 75 percent of it and filled remainder with his dirty water as to not shock him. I also placed bubble in small tank and he continued to go round and round due to bubbles, however after about an hour sunk to bottom upside down and is barley breathing; ..this is when i noticed that he has what pear to be small white spots on him,larger black areas on his fins and it almost seems as if his fins have holes in them. I am already beating myself up for this..not doing my proper research on beta care and therefore in a way neglecting him. I love him very much,he is like a puppy dog to me,with the best personality i have ever met in a fish. I am so very upset that because i did not take proper care of him or notice sooner that he was ill and it seems therefore he is likely to die. So, please if you can offer me some detailed help/advice on what to do a.s.a.p...someone, ..you may save his life. I am finding mixed and confusing info on what to do, i am hoping there may be someone with this knowledge that could tell me asap what exactly to do?
