Exclamation Betta Inactive!

Everyone is telling me that my betta isn't used to its home yet, thats why it has been inactive. But I had it for 5 days now, and it still hasn't done much. Help?

What size is the tank? Do you have a heater? How often do you do water changes? These are all things that we need to know in order to help.

In that size, you MUST change the water DAILY. Also, your Betta will never be more active unless you get a heater and a larger tank. I can't really help you.

You're welcome. I really hope sometime soon that your parents will change their minds. I know it's not your fault.

You're welcome. If you have a heating pad, the type you use for a bed, you could put that on LOW under his bowl. You'll need to keep an eye on the temp to make sure it doesn't overheat, but putting a towel or two in between the pad and the bowl should help it not get too warm.

You're welcome. If it gets too hot, just take the bowl off for a while, and put it back on later.
