But now he's bent at 45-90 degrees even though he isn't swimming. He seems to lay on his back frequently now and also seems to be gasping for air. Or at least, his mouth is twitching a lot, as if he's eating, just like a rabbit.
I also tested the water right away and didn't find anything abnormal.
pH: about 7.8 (I know, it's a bit high, but I read that as long as the pH remains steady it's fine)
Ammonia: 0 PPM
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 10-20 ppm
I have a 10 gallon with a heater and a Hagen Marina Slim 15.
I have a betta, 5 neon tetras, and 4 black kuhli loaches
Is a a bacterial/viral infection or a parasite? Do I need to quarantine him? Unfortunately, I don't have much of a quarantine tank. It's a 2.5 gallon with a heater, but no filter (it used to be the betta's tank).
Or might it be something else?
I've got a video of his behaviour/"seizures"
