I recently got a Betta Fish from the pet store and initially put him in a large fish bowl, approximately 2 Gallons.
Today, I moved him into a 5 Gallon Tank and followed the instructions to a tee. I climatized him but had a tough time getting him out of the bowl with the net. I might have hurt him when I did this. :( This was about 5 hours ago.
Now, he is floating in the top corner of the tank. He's living and he'll move a bit. He'll also sort of float back and then swim forward, float back, swim forward, etc. It's almost like he relaxes his body and then moves again.
Is this really bad? He's so sweet and has such a good personality. He seemed happy in the bowl and moved around a lot before. He was in the bowl for about 4 days before today.
Please let me know what you think
