My Betta was exposed to insecticides over the summer and became very ill. He is still with us 4 months later but hardly moves at all and lays at the bottom of the tank. I significantly reduced the water because he was having trouble getting to the top. Initially, he improved a bit but there’s been no progress since. I feel so bad for him. Thanks for any useful advice.

  • please add this information how big is your tank,type of filtration and heating,the readings of your water test ammonia-nitrite-ph-nitrate. – trond hansen Nov 9 '19 at 6:14
  • Water temperature should be around 80 F. – blacksmith37 Nov 9 '19 at 18:14
  • Is he still in the same tank he was in when he was exposed to insecticide? – Akuminari Nov 10 '19 at 20:09
  • give him 10 gallons or more, a filter, and frequent partial water changes and then let's see if the problem persists – Manuki Nov 13 '19 at 18:35
