So I just released my new girl into the sorority and I'm really concerned because she doesn't swim right (like the other bettas). The way she moves is more like a kuhli loach or something...she immediately sank to the bottom and it looks like she struggles to swim at all. I'm afraid she may have to have her own, much shallower tank because it doesn't look like she's even capable or getting to the surface!
Anyone have any idea what could cause her to sink/look paralyzed/only move her pectorals? She CAN move her body because I've seen her do little bursts in her small cup but the current from the HOB filter all but knocks her over! She is able to right herself tho. :( She is kinda hopping along on the bottom, exploring.
I'm really concerned! Any help is much appreciated!
I've attached a pic of her in the tank (a 55g).
