My tank is in the kitchen and today I had to have some plumbing work done. Workmen had to cutout a portion of the ceiling to repair a water leak. I covered the tank while they were working so that dust and dirt doesnt get into the tank. FYI.....the work was not being done directly above him....opposite side of the room
After uncovering the tank, my betta is frightened and skiddish. He is hiding behind the filter and has been in the same spot for 2-3 hours now. Not even food lured him out.
I've heard they can scare easily, but is this normal? He was breathing heavy earlier,but seems to be normal now. His side flippers are moving. But he wont move from his little hide out.
