cleaned him and

I recently cleaned my fish's bowl. He's been sitting on the bottom of the bowl for about two hours, I just want to know that there's nothing abnormal about that and it's ok he's doing that. I've had bad luck with bettas so I'm just curious

Welcome to Fishforum.com.

What are your water parameters? If you have no test kit yet, I'd suggest using API liquid test kit to determine your ammonia, nitrites, nitrates and pH. Do you have a heater and a thermometer? What is the temperature?

What food do you feed it? What is your tank maintenance schedule? How did you clean the tank? Do you use dechlorinator before adding the new water to the bowl?

Ater i clean Tango's tank, He always "pouts" at the bottom for around 2 hours...

I always thought that was normal because he gets stessed out, and needs time to calm his nerves...
