What size tank do you keep him in? What temperature do you keep him at?
He's probably just in a little bit of shock right now. I'd go ahead and offer him a couple pellets and see if he eats. If not then remove and try again tomorrow.
He's in a five gal. 1/2 circle tank and drop thermometer is at 74F. Is that a good setting? It had always been at that setting for Alpha 1; this is Alpha II. He's still moving around at his normal rate of swimming, resting at bottom, periodically going up to top for air, etc. I did give him one betta pellet and he consumed that one. Will now give a second. Thanks.
