Sigh...I was just here posting questions yesterday. Okay, here's what's happened; I moved my betta from his 2.5g tank to 10g. Let the new system filter for 24hrs, tested for amonia levels, the heater has it at his normal temp, pH is identical...then I acclimated him, and he was much more energetic after being in his bowl I use while doing water changes.
He had a bit of a bright stripe along his body while floating in his baggie, but its faded since.
But after being free in his new tank, he wandered a little near the surface, then found the corner and has been flaring at his reflection for fourty-five minutes now.
I turned off the tank light, and just now put a towel over the tank hoping he'll calm down a bit but...I mean the room is white, so the natural lighting coming in is still bright enough to cause reflections. I plan to get a background and see if that helps, but...should I be worried if he continues like this? I've read amongst all the floating info on the net that even though it's a natural reaction, too much could srsly stress him out.
