Question Depressed betta?

so i came home today and found my whole room rearranged because my mom decided to surprise me with new furniture and bedding and what not but she also moved the location of my bettas tank from one dresser to another.

He was fine this morning, behaving like he normally does but now hes just at the bottom of his tank and it looks like he darts up for air and quickly goes down again. could he be scared of his new surroundings?

He might just be somewhat shocked because he was used to your room being one way but then it all changed.

What temperature is he kept at? D:

[Edit:] Hmm wait... maybe he's just shaken up? I know my betta fish are usually a little weirded out when I move them some place else for a little bit.

Try a bit of bettafix, just cause it's suppose to help improve their electrolytes or something. :) If he's depressed, it should help a bit.

^o^ That's good! If that's the case :) At least he's not sick, cause my secondary worry was that if your mom used some cleaning agents that got airborne when she rearranged your room (cause I'm pretty sure mom's can't 'rearrange' without cleaning) some might have gotten into his tank and made him sick D:
