check and check no almond leaves tho . he has a hiding cup and a nice planted area with his fave plant he hides behind. i just got him yesterday and im worried i have stressed him too much in the two days iv had him. :( i had to re arange a few plants because he wouldnt stop flaring at himself for like 2 hours stright and it was giving him stress lines, so i went in and moved a plant onto the wall so he couldnt see his reflection there and now hes hiding at the bottom of the tank by a plant. hes my first betta and i feel bad that i might have over stressed him.
