Question What Am I Doing Wrong???

Heroman was moved to a new "tank" on Tuesday from his .5G hex to something exactly like this except the print is different (his tank is Christmas themed with instead of crayons, he has a red and green plaid print). I cleaned it thoroughly beforehand as well, just in case. He has gravel at the bottom, a betta leaf on one half of the "tank" and three fake plants on the other half which he uses as a hiding place.

Here is the issue. When he was in his tiny .5G tank, he had a TON of energy. He was constantly fighting with his reflection even though there were a lot of obstacles. Now, all he does is kinda float -near- his little jungle without actually doing anything. He's less active even though the water is warmer and I've been giving him a mix of flakes and bloodworms. =/ Today, he's getting a tank heater, a couple of plants and I was hoping a tank buddy, but if he's too lethargic for that perhaps not....

Any ideas?? Pics will follow.

He's probably weirded out by the new environment.
Maybe he just needs some time to adjust.

Maybe, because of the plastic something is happening. Did you use water conditioner and the works?

Wait a day or two. Takes time for some fish to adjust to new environments.
