Does he react e when you go to his tank? Make frequent visits so he gets used to you. Some new Bettas take days to settle in.
He just keeps swimming around rapidly everywhere in the tank. He notices me, flares, then goes back to swimming around a lot. When I got him I thought he was really active! Literally doing rapid laps in the small cup he came in from Petco. Starting to think he's a little nuts. Not sure why he's going sort of crazy in the tank. I've tapped the top of the water, he doesn't take notice. He's just swimming around A LOT and rather fast.
