Yeaahh, the funny part is his name was free willy,And that kinda mimicked the final scene where he jumps over the rock wall into the ocean,only mine jumped over a wall into the sink...
Man i loved that movie.

So dancer is overall doing fine except that when i put my finger at the top of his water to feed him bloodworms he cant fully flare his gills like he normally does... its like he tries and they only flare partial but not fully... but i guess if i had jumped on the counter and landed on my side out of water id not be 100% either... hes still eating and taking food from me and swimming normal and resting in his plants and next to his heater like he usually does and still following me when i have him follow my finger from one end to the other... hes still showing off his fins and surfacing to breathe... just watching him more closely today

i know im not Mumma, but clamped fins from what ive seen are where the bettas have their fins down close to their body not showing them off like they normally do. my dancer has done that before when ive used melafix with him when he had fin rot and as soon as i changed his water and didnt use it he was back to normal. ive also heard of bettas doing that when they are stressed or sick... hope this helps Amy

When the fins are folded in/down on themselves, not spread out (like when the fish is swimming). All fish do it when something is up.
