Well, Lamai my new Betta was swimming around, seemed to be really happy and even had a flaring fit at himself and my mobile phone taking photos of him last night after I`d sorted his tank in the afternoon. He was looking so beautiful, his fins were all looking brill.....but today is a different story
Since I got up this morning Lamai hasn`t really moved very much at all. The filter in the tank has a very subtle flow but I turned the filter off in case that might have been upsetting him, that doesn`t seem to have made any difference. I put a small dollop of daphnia in the tank to see if I could get Lamai to eat.....no joy, he hasn`t eaten anything since I got him yesterday.
He seems really sad, doesn`t seem to want to do anything except sit at the top of the tank with his fins and tail all quite close to his body. The heater is on 82 and the water is warm so I really don`t think it`s because of the water temp.....could he just be settling in to his new surroundings??
Any advice would be very much appreciated as I`m really not sure why he`s so different today to what he was like yesterday
Hopefully it`s just a case of him getting used to his new home.
