I recently got two new betta males. (Akio- Orange and Kumo-Black) (It's been a few days/week now.)
Both haven't been doing much of anything and hide/lay on rocks all the time.
Kumo will swim up and flare his fins a bit if I tap the glass, but Akio wont do anything.
Akio looks to have a white line on his top and a black mark on his side - I'll post pics. (Then a pic of Kumo..but because he's black I don't see anything wrong with him)
