Hi everyone! So I had my yellow VT in a divided 10g tank with another betta and he didn't like the arrangement, so I moved him into his own 2.5g tank with a heater and he's been happy go lucky ever since.
I did a water change on his tank yesterday and when I did, I couldn't find the usual bowl I use to cup him in, so I had to use a bigger one that didn't sit in the tank all the way. I acclimated him to the water, but I don't think the bowl was able to take to the tank temperature...
He's been surface and corner surfing all day, just sitting there... He won't eat, he won't move. Last night he wouldn't come out of his cave, he just looked at me with angry little eyes. He acknowledges my finger when I put it up to him but otherwise, he's a floating rock.
He has no signs of parasites, lesions, swelling, no pineconing, no signs of general illness but I can tell he's stressed. What should I do about his situation? Should I hope he comes back out of shock?
My fiance purchased me a 25w heater to put in my other 10g tank so if his condition can hold for two more days I can move him into a more stable tank (he has a flat pre-set heater right now but it never takes the tank abouve 82). Should I do anything until then? I just wish he would eat. Should I dangle a bloodworm in front of him and see if it urges his appetite?
