I got a betta today from Petco and what do I do?
I tried to scoop him out of the container with my hand. Of course he flops out of my hand. I try to pick him up and of course he keeps falling out of my hand all over the carpet, until I finally get him in there. :[
I can't believe I let that happen. And I can't believe that he is now swimming in a S motion. He swims to the top for air easily, but not so much straight across.
I also caught him laying down on the gravel breathing heavy. Ugh. I can't believe myself. GRrr.
What should I do other that giving him time and lowering the water level?
He's in a 3 gallon at 78 degrees.
