Rapid Breathkng

So I had to cup Wonder. She is floating in the girls tank. Ever since I cupped her she has had more rapid breathing, but she isn't coming up for air every few seconds like a betta with breathing problems would.

What are the ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels in the tank? If she's been there for quite a while I think the ammonia level has gone up. Why did you cup her? Aggressive reasons? My Bettas breath heavily if I do water changes even with same temperatured water. Maybe the sudden event was tiring for her?

I had to cup her cause she was being picked on. I really don't know the levels. I have to find me test stripes.

Then there isn't much to do then. She might just be tired.. Test strips aren't really accurate, liquid ones are much better. API Master Test Kit is the best IMO.
