Monte the Betta

I don’t understand this Betta. He just passes out for extended periods of time. Every time he does it, I swear he’s dead. It looks like his gills aren’t moving, and he won’t come to life if you put food in his bowl or tap the glass.

Last night he was just floating on the top for about an hour, lifeless. Right now he’s lying motionless on his side on the bottom of the tank… just kind of sprawled on some rocks. It’s weird, scary, unsettling, disconcerting, all that.

Seizures? Coma? Normal Betta behavior? Practical Joker? You decide.

Regardless, I keep thinking he’s going to die.

Edit: Okay, this time he’s really dead. Our last fish lasted two years before he committed suicide. This fish lasted five days.
