Hello. I moved to a new apartment about two weeks ago. I made sure the move went smoothly for my betta (it's only a couple of miles away) but I realize it can still be stressful. I used to have the tank right next to my desk and so we would face each other all the time. Now he's on the other side of the room and we don't have that same level of contact (?) anymore.
A couple of days ago I noticed that his tail is missing chunks of it but it doesn't look like fin rot. I don't know how to describe it but I believe he was biting on it.
So my question is...do they get lonely? I do know that they prefer to be alone in their tank but they seem like very curious creatures. Should I move the tank next to the desk again so I can pay more attention to him??
Just FYI, he is in a 6 gallon tank with heater and filter. NOthing about the setting has changed other than water change and the location.
