When cleaning my tank, my betta jumped out of the net and onto the counter. Now he just seems to mope around the tank. He is usually super active, darting around the tank and he would always responds to me.
Right after the incident, he would just chill in the bottom, facing the corner (and the only time I've seen him like this is when I've had to take him on a car ride) and would just lay down at the bottom of the rocks. I went out and finally got him a leaf hammock, which I tried to get him to use with food, but no luck. He also hasn't been eating regularly, which he normally gobbled down his food.
He's also never tried jumping out of the tank before, so this is the first time he's ever jumped.
Today he has just been chilling at the very top, still barely moving, not responding to me or food. This afternoon I noticed the bubbles... isn't that a good thing?
My fish seems traumatized... and I'm wondering if it's psychological? How long can bettas remember things? Could he have hurt something? Why isn't he eating? What can I do to help him?
