I bought a 2 new baby CT's from a petstore i go to a lot a few days ago, and one is smaller than the other (Pearly). I put Pearly in a 1 gallon bowl since he's so small, it has a lot of space for him. Ever since i put Pearly in this bowl though, he hasnt been moving around often. I feed him normally, i've had him for 3 days now, he eats when i feed him too. But in his bowl, he stays in one position for about 5 minutes, then goes for air, moves a little, then repeats. My other 2 bettas are very active in their tanks, thats why i'm thinking something might be wrong. But then again, Pearly is so young, it might just be from that. Please help me lol, i love my fishies.
Some of them just take a little longer to settle in. I've noticed it more with males, my females all seemed to feel at home quicker. I had one male that every time I put him in a 1g tank he'd end up floating at the top like he was dead, I'd put him back in the cup & he'd be fine, it was very odd. Now he's in a 10g filtered & heated tank & happy as can be.
Aww I'm sorry for your loss Homegrown Terror, and Shellieca the same thing happened with me with Pearly, he was moving around a lot in his little cup, then i took him out and i think he was like "woah O.O"
