well he was energetic...

so i went into Petco yesterday and to my surprise they had a huge selection of bettas! well i was looking around a found an awesome blue DOUBLE TAIL! no fin curls, very engergetic, flaring at the other fish and at our little mirror ;).. i had to get him! well i left him in his little cup till i got home (2 hour drive) and set him up in a small temporary tank untill i could get him a bigger one. but now he just sits on the bottom and barely swims around. and he wont flare at his reflection. is he just in shock from the move?

He's probably still adjusting, it can take some time.. give him a couple more days. Try to keep it a little bit dark for him, maybe?

Yeah, he's just nervous.
Give him some time and he'll come around.
Just don't disturb him too much while he's adjusting.

If you haven't already done it, give him a cave or some plants he can hide in and he will feel more secure.
