Thumbs down No luck. I don't know what to do!

Okay, as mentioned earlier, I tried switching the fish into the tank again. Something is definitely wrong... He swam around erratically, then stopped in the silk plants, not moving at all, with his mouth wide open. I doubt it's a normal behaviour, so back in the bowl he is. He's breathing again now.

He did not make the "coughing" gesture again, but not breathing isn't better...

I'm starting to think the bowl is a better option. I mean, I did absolutely everything I needed to do, I don't understand. It's the third time I try putting him into the tank...

Here's a video of his behaviour. View My Video He seemed normal when he was introduced, then swam quickly into the vase. That's when he came out.

I watched he video but don't understand about the vase? Is there a floating clear vase where the video stops? Every once in a while I've seen mine swim that way and suddenly stop. Maybe someone else will see something I didn't.

Haha, I admit I wasn't really clear! The vase is one of my ornaments. It's true we can't see it in the video. The part that was filmed is when he came out of it.

What did he do after he stopped at the top of the tank? I don't know if fish can get "out of breath" the way we do when making those quick movements. You might want to link your other post in this one so people will know the backstory.

He stopped breathing completely. Kept his mouth wide open, like in the first picture. He was just floating, paralyzed... And I wasn't seeing any gill movement, either.

Here's my other post http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=560434

I think I just found the issue, by looking at the video! You can see a reflection of him in the glass that he ends up charging, which leads to him opening his mouth like he hurt himself! Does that make sense?
