Other info (posted in Y!Answers as well):
My betta used to live in a really tiny tank (half gallon, before I knew they needed bigger). Anyways, a couple days ago I put him into his new, 2 gallon tank (all I have room for right now). I floated him in a baggie in the tank for about 3 hours *adding water from the new tank periodically*, and he was adjusting perfectly. He was swimming around and acting like he normally does until yesterday morning.
His fins are clamped and he doesn't do much of anything. He usually does his little Betta-dance when I come home and when its feeding time, but he can't anymore (he does try, though D= ) At first I thought he was bloated so I haven't been feeding him, but after noticing the fins I'm not so sure anymore. *I just fed him and he ate it all, so this is not the problem.*
I left the new tank to cycle using the fish-food method for two days before placing him in there.
He has no other symptoms, other than the fact he has difficulty swimming due to his fins and therefore he just kinda floats there. No scratching, nothing on the body, etc.
What should I do/what do you think this is? Is it just delayed stress of moving, a fungus, water quality issues?
