I am not sure if my betta is completely ok. He has been laying on the floor of his tank for the last couple of hours. He may be trying to get out of the light to sleep because my roommates are inconsiderate and often leave the light on when they go into the living room (at 4:00 am and 8:00 am respectively). He is probably only getting 3-6 hours of dark, maybe less. I also royally screwed up when trying to get a picture of him. my stupid new phone turned on the flash because it was dark so he started flaring. He calmed down after I fed him. He was flaring when I took the following picture so his gills are out (he doesn't normally have a huge bulge like in the picture)
This is a picture of his new colors, which I don't know if they are because of some illness or because he is just getting his color (he is a fairly new betta fish).
He also has that new decoration which may be the problem. In the picture you can see it looks dusty on the surface but when I look down on it after taking off the lid it looks completely fine. I just changed his tank 3 days ago, 2 gallon tank. he is still eating fine, and vigorously at that.
