I just got a new betta earlier this week, and he seems happy. He's making bubble nests, and hes very active. I haven't seen him eat, but he's still adjusting and he's probably just picky.
At first I thought he had fin rot, so I put some bettafix in his bowl.
Sometimes bettafix clouds my water, but the water is not just cloudy, it seems like its thick. Its almost like a gel. He can still swim through it, but I feel bad for the poor guy. Its not thick to the point that its gel, but its like a soupy consitency. I'm not sure if its the light, or the bettafix, or the new decor and gravel. I rinsed everything very well before I put it in the tank. Also, my other betta (in a different tank), seems to be perfectly fine, and hes under the same conditions. Some bettafix because he had torn his fin, and a light. The only difference is that he has an air pump. I don't think its the air pump because until recently, I didn't have an air pump in my other betta's tank.
It's too late now, but I plan on doing a water change tomorrow morning as soon as I wake up.
Is this bad for my betta, also do you have any idea what might have caused this!
I feel so bad for him, and I want to do everything to make him happy in his new home!
