That's the one thing I forgot. You should of let the fish ( and every water change) let them sit in their cup while getting used to their new temp of water

Yeah, it is! My mom said only one, but when she found out that we only needed one tank, she let me get two. Crap...She left to go to the mall, and I did the transfer when she was gone...well, she wont be cleaning the tanks, so she doesn't have to worry!

Actually, it's okay to not cup them in water changes. Healthy bettas should be able to take in the shock of ammonia-less water. :) It's also not just about the temperature, after 30 minutes of floating in the new home, you have to pour out 50% of the cup water and add in small drops of tank water to reduce shock. You have to add in tank water every 5-10 minutes.
Did you not do this, crowntail?

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

No, I didn't do that. I did let the water sit for about 25 minutes durring each transfer to let the temp regulate.
