Did you just get your fish in the mail, or at a pet store? Can you also fill out this form and paste your answers in the next post? http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=49233

Pictures would also be helpful.

Heres a pic, he hasnt been on the ground that much anymore, he has been on the heater for while. He isnt on there all the time, he'll swim around when he gets air then maybe flare at my other betta. What i think it is is that his fins are too heaving and because he is a giant hm its just really hard for him. Could that be it, potentially?
