my betta fish is spitting out food has not eaten for 5 days he is lethargic lying at the bottom of the tank and occasionally darts to the top of the tank help please i don”t want him to die
I think the problem is with the food. If he darts often that means at least he still is energetic. What kind of food are you giving him? Bettas often do not prefer flakes and will eat them at the last resort. My fish, Splash, hates flakes and will only eat pellets. My suggestion is to switch to a different type of betta food and give him a treat often, like blood worms. Even if he keeps spitting out food dont worry. My last fish did not eat for like 1 week. Atleast your fish is giving an effort. He is probobly seeking a little attention.
