I'm worried about my little guy. When I first got him he just swam normally through his tank and blew bubble nests every day. A week later I changed his water and now its been almost two weeks with no bubble nests and spasm-like behavior.
He's in a 1Gallon tank, I usually leave the light on from 4pm through 10pm.
I give him three betta pellets in the morning and two at night.
I use the water conditioning fizz tabs when I change his water.
His water temperature is always around 78 F.
I was advised to put in a moss ball in order to maintain the algae content low in his tank so I bought one and put it in when I changed his water a week and a half after getting him. It has been 3 weeks since I got him. I'm thinking the moss ball is what changed his behavior? I just took the moss ball out today but I'm still worried about him...might he need a heater? or could he be just stressed?
I posted a video of his behavior on youtube: <www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOJYZCUqUfE>
