my little guy that I just got on Friday, doesn't seem to like to swim through the plants in his tank. He also doesn't like to lay on his leaf hammock that I have on the side.
As far as I have seen he doesn't like to do that. He just likes to swim back and forth along the back of the tank where I have a fern scrapbooking paper background (yes the paper is on the outside) (my tank is also a 5 gallon)
He also doesn't go to the bottom that much either (that i've seen) he just likes to swim around the top and sometimes the middle of the tank along the back side where the heater and paper is at. There are times where he goes down to the bottom when he's swimming along the side of the glass (i think he sees his reflection and i think he thinks he's swimming with another fish.)
Should I be concerned? Is there anything that I should do? Suggestions?
Or am I just paranoid. I just don't want him to not be able to sleep at night because he won't rest or go through his plants. (right now he actually was just down on the bottom and actually swimming in spots I haven't seen him swim at yet, which included swimming somewhat near his purple/blue plant)
He's very active always swimming around, full of color, his fins are only clamped I guess you could say when he swims because he's a double tailed betta so it gives him more speed and he's been eating the tiny flakes that i gave him today and yesterday. and when i mean tiny it's like one or two little pieces since i don't know how much he was fed before I got him.
Below is a picture of my tank and my set up in the picture I do not have the hammock in the tank, but it is located on the left side of the tank and the suction cup is just a about .5 inch below the water line because i had it higher before and he would swim weird across the leaf because of his top fin was too close to the top of the water.
