After 4 years my darling Bubsy has passed on. As I've had bettas ever since I was a kid I got another one now named Steve. However Steve is very shy and spends all his time hiding next to the heater or hiding under the water intake. He won't eat nor will he come out from his hiding place. Bubsy liked to sleep on the various ledges and caves in the take but this fish is very shy.
He's only been with me for a couple days. The water is the temp my past fish have liked (80) and the water tests are coming up fine. I've offered Steve brine shrimp and regular betta chow but he seems too scared to eat. Any suggestions? Anybody else have a shy betta like this? He was full of energy and action in his cup when I got him but now that he's in a large tank he doesn't know what to do with himself
Worried about Steve
