Ok here are two videos of my boys. Aku pacing back and forth and Poor Mojo had bloat. His bloat has done down but he keeps eating some left over snail food GAHHHH he is a pig now after he came out of the QT. XD I guess that means he is getting more active. =P

Your bettas are crazy gorgeous. Aku is he always speeding up like that? I don't see anything wrong with him.

I guess its him being too active unless you will see he is really stressed. Or may be sudden change from smaller tank to the bigger . And he will get used to it and calm down.

He turned really pale one day so I treated him with salt. I have been having ammonia spikes and I think he is stress from that. I will be getting a Anacharis. I have an air stone in the two tanks. Mojo is back in his QT at least for one more night. =/ A person on here told me that it could be from the snails in the two tanks. I took them out to see if they are the issue of the ammonia spike.

If it ammonia spike you don't want to add salt. You need to take care of the problem and salt will not help with ammonia problem at all. So do not add salt.
I don't cycle any of the tanks so i am not experienced with cycling. But if its ammonia spike then you need to do more water changes. 3 gall even with a filter you need to do minimum 2-50% water changes a week with vacuuming and cleaning the filter media. I don't remember how much water you been changing?
If you transfer Mojo back and forth to the hospital tank , you can keep him in his main tank , just do more water changes and check ammonia. You can take the filter out and just try to do 2-50% water changes and one full water changes a wk. I would think it would take care of the ammonia.
As i remember you don't have ammonia in your tap water right?
