About a year and 8 months old. Had to buy a new tank recently as built in filter died. Discovered this because fish was staying at the top breathing due to filter no longer circulating air.

For the last week with new tank he just lays at the bottom. I’ve done everything I can find from treating tank with beta fix shutting off filter (while running air with separate unit), and more hides. And some fancy salt treatment (outside of his living tank). As well as stopping feeding for swim bladder. But the situation hasn’t resolved with any efforts and he continues to just lay at the bottom.

This isn’t my first beta fish or tank. I’ve had many different fish but none of my experience seems to be working.

Since it was a new tank and filter, did you test the nitrite in the Water?
