My new betta occasionally (twice) has darted around the tank like crazy around his plant, and once on the gravel of the tank.
I only got him 3 days ago and he seemed healthy. He ate on the first day but hasn't eaten anything since then... (I've tried pellets and bloodworms)
He isn't showing any other symptoms and his colour is still strong. He also swims around from time to time varying between the top and bottom of the water.
He was more active on the first day I got him though...
Would this be anything to worry about, and would the "scratching" be normal for a healthy betta? Coincidently it has happened both times when I turn the light on near his tank to check on him at night.
It wouldn't be a parasite would it?! It seems too soon....
Also, I've heard of bettas not eating the first few days.... But is it normal for him to stop after the first day?
