:P The old neurotic man part made me laugh, mostly because I don't find it hard to picture an old neurotic man-betta. At all.

Pei, how big is your tank?

Also, you can use the container he came in to scoop him up. A lot less stressful than a cup. You can even try to train him to swim in by feeding him each time and letting the food float into the half-submerged cup.

Haha yeah he is a little ocd about his tank if I move a plant or anything he used to freak out and just hide.When I moved him to the 5.5 gallon tank from a 1 gallon he was fine but when I moved him from the vase he came in to the 1 gallon tank he hide for about a month lol.He is still neurotic though and the oldest fish in the house lol .
