I don't abuse fish I've had bettas for five years.. Just to clarify.
i got my betta 4 days ago now, he was very active at first and all i had for him was a half gallon tanky bowl thing
2 days later he was just sitting at the bottom with his head in the corner of the tank where a rock also was (so literally had his head in a little space between the two) and wasn't doing much of anything, really. he also wasn't eating or even attempting to eat.
i got him a new tank (10 gallons) with a heater and filter and now he is doing really good it seems.
he's probably cold/bored which could lead to worse things..
