Your fish really needs an aquarium, the clasic goldfish bowl with cartoons on them are not suited for beta fish. With your new fish, I'd suggest buying the beta fish made recpie food, and you can ask a worker at your pet store which brand they feed to the beta fish, and which brand they would suggest. Beta fish really need plants in their tanks, and big river rock like glass pebbles, not tiny ones, also do NOT buy the funny plastic hiding places, they can contain harmful chemicals that will kill your fish.

Is it possible that its a she and its pregnant? Cause the females are much lighter in color than the males, and most are a peachy color. I had a betta male that lived for 5 years. He was very old. My others lived at least 2 years.
I'm not sure, but she/he could be dying I'm so sorry.

edit beta fish ... need special water, special food, and plants and rock hiding places in their tank. I'm sorry, i know some people get attached to them even though some people think its just a stupid fish, iit can be hard to lose a small pet fish, when i lost my last beta fish after 3 years with him, i wasn't sad but i felt like i had failed him...
That's kind of mean.

That is kinda harsh.

Sorry I wouldn't know what kind of adivce to give you. There are betta fish takes that are made for betta fish, they can live in small ones(my brother worked at a petstore and the fish guy said they could live in small tanks!) Hope your fish is ok

- it used to be pretty much all light orange.... now the body's paler and the body's turned peach most betta fish turn colors
- it doesn't move much and stays at the bottom of the bowl. plus for the last few days its been standing vertically. I've had 3-4 betta fish and they usually stay at the bottom, but not standing vertically, that's pretty weird.
- it doesn't eat at ALL! only once 2 weeks ago it seemed interested in food but for some reason didn't eat it (it pecked at the food. maybe its mouth isn't big ehough..... i dont know!) my fish did that too. they just look at it and eat it later
- it hasn't pooped once since i got it. and i change the water twice a week sometimes i think they eat it (xD) I've watched mine do that.. they think it's food
- for about 1 week it's belly seemed to grow. and since its color is really pale now, you can see a dark park where the belly grew. it looks like it ate a marble i'm not sure..
- its fins stick out a bit I think it's supposed to do that, mine did that.
- the gills are deep red but its seems to be breathing ok (although its also constantly taking big breathes with its mouth - like its gasping) I think that's normal
-it often lies on the gravel/rocks at the bottom and doesn't move for a while.

mine did that too.

I hope your fish get better (:

The pregnant part could be true too. I had a pregnant goldfish once, and it had a big stomach. (well duh xD)

I have a betta. Their scales seem to always be pale. I don't know why the stomach is going out. For the last week or two mine has been either swimming tilted or vertical, or laying on the bottom of the tank.

One thing you never do. NEVER give it tap water.

i changed the water today.... my fish seems to be leaning sideways, against the bowl... and it seems to have a hard time to even get to the surface of the water to take a breath
