Betta fish laying on bottom of tank

I’m worried about my fish – for the past month he has been laying around the bottom of his bowl and just recently I noticed four red lines (he’s a blue fish) on both sides of his gills. It’s kinda freaking me out. Have any ideas what it could be?

Madeleine – It sounds like your fish has swim bladder disease. Here’s a link to this same site which explains various betta fish diseases causes and potential cures. Mine has the same problem and came here to see what the problem was. Sounds like over feeding one cause for this problem.
