What could be wrong?

We just got the kids Bettas 2 days ago. The one is doing well and swimming all over, eating, and everything. The other one, does not seem to be doing well. He hangs at the bottom of the tank, doesn't really eat, and is opening and closing his mouth a lot similar to a goldfish. His gills also seem to be opening very wide. What could be the problem? We have a 14 day guarantee on these, should I return it and get a new one?

Are they male or female?

They are both male bettas. A blue one and a red one. The red one is not doing well. The blue one is in a 2 gallon tank, and the red one is in a 3 gallon tank. Both have air filters in them. I can't get a good picture right now because the kids are sleeping.
