Hi. I know this is a common topic for betta but I can not figure out if she is egg bound or bloated. It's been almost two weeks and her tummy has not gone down. She only had 2 peas to eat within that time. Otherwise she has not eaten anything. Shes been hanging around the bottom of the tank for weeks as well. There is a cat in the house who has been preying on her tank off and on and that is when she started hiding more.
People from petco are telling me she may be egg bound or she may be constipated so I still dont know. What is the time frame for them to absorb their eggs if she is egg bound?
Hi please help me. My betta has been bloated for almost two weeks. Petco is saying shes bloated and preganat depending on who I talk to...
