new tank

I just changed Wavy's home from a hurricane vase to a 1.5gal tank w/ filter/heater. It's been 4days and he's still acting off, he swims near the bottom alot, hardly eats, and is swimming into the glass (obviosly seeing his reflection), and snugs up to the filter and heater alot. I didn't do any type of water maintenance I just conditioned it and made sure it was temp safe and put him in.
Not sure what to do.

You should read this and make sure you do enough water changes for your size tank.
What are you feeding him ?

Might be too much current in a tank that size. Turn the filter off for a day and see what happens.

I keep my boy in a 2.5 gallon with just a heater & no filter. It has worked out great. I threw some floating anacharis I picked up for $3 too & he loved it.
