Okay so I know I did a really bad job on filling out the sheet.
I got a betta for work. He sits at the front desk of a hotel. He is in a old jar they used for cereal. I washed it in the dishwasher, Im estimating it is about a 2 gallon. He has rocks and a silk plant in there. I bought a little tunnel for him. The lights are on 24/7 so I am really not sure if the lack of darkness has a effect on them.
I am worried because he just chills at the bottom or shoots down to his plant. He is not active at all and wont eat. He wont even observe dropping food in the tank or even look at it. He is a petstore fish and looking at his topline, his back is bent so I am not sure if thats effecting him. I got him a week ago.
I am really worried because the one i have at home is in a smaller tank and happy as heck because he is active, I play with him and he loves attacking his dry bloodworms so it makes me feel really bad because the one at work seems miserable. Can someone please help!
